Gratitude: “Baking Bread in Lyon,” by Bill Buford

Thank you for making our April discussion a great one!

Our 15th Article Club discussion is in the books! We read and annotated Bill Buford’s “Baking Bread in Lyon” and participated in three deep, thoughtful conversations. Thank you!

Thank you to Peter, Summer, Jennifer, Barbara, Elise, Molly, Renée, Shreya, Lauri, Angie, Gayle, Beth, Per, Lorie, Angelina, Laura, Daniel, Rebecca, Vanessa, Lisa, and Meaghan for joining the discussion. I’m very grateful.

Also, I deeply appreciate Elise C. and Summer for co-facilitating, Lisa for being on the podcast, and Mr. Buford for answering all our questions.

Congratulations to Angelina for winning a hardcopy of Dirt. Bonus: Mr. Buford is going to be sending you a bookplate!

Reflections, affirmations, and celebrations are open:
What did you appreciate about this month’s Article Club? How can we make things better?

Go ahead, shout out your fellow Article Clubbers, and if you have a message for Mr. Buford, I’ll be sure to send it his way.

Here are a few of my reflections:

  1. We’re growing! But I like how the discussions remain small and intimate.

  2. Having the author at the discussion is amazing. But I need to figure out a smoother way for the author and you all to interact.

  3. I’m hopeful that more people will give Article Club a try. If you love to read and want to connect with other kind people, we welcome you.

See you next weekend! That’s when I’ll reveal May’s article. If you want to plan ahead, our discussion will be on Sunday, May 23, 2:00 - 3:15 pm PT.

And if you like Article Club, please get the word out!
