The Patience of Rivers: A great choice for Book Clubs...

With its historic setting, family drama, first love, and highly readable style, The Patience of Rivers is perfect for book clubs and reading groups.

And author Joseph Freda has an offer for you: "I always welcome the opportunity to meet with readers, and I'd be happy to participate in your book discussion. If your group meets within driving distance of Sullivan County, New York, I'd gladly consider attending your discussion. If you're from farther away, we can arrange a speakerphone session."

To discuss a meeting with your book club, please send Joe an email.


...and for Writing and Literature courses.
