Over the weekend I spoke with a bookclub of mothers and sons about The Good Thief. These moms read books with their sons and then have a fun night of talk and food inspired by the stories. I think this is a fantastic idea, and am going to spread the word to other families I know. This bookclub had great questions for me, and also put together a fun meal, that included bottles of “Mother Jones’s Elixir for Misbehaving Children” (which appears in chapter 11) and even a graveyard cake (inspired by chapter 15). To see other bookclubs I’ve spoken with, go to the “Meet the Bookclubs” page. I’m always happy to chat with bookclubs, so if yours is reading The Good Thief, please visit the bookclub section of this website to arrange a call or visit.
