book group expo will bring together people who love books—avid readers, acclaimed authors, book club and reading group members, up-and-coming writers, booksellers, and book group experts. This year’s event kicks off with internationally acclaimed author Khaled Hosseini (The Kite Runner) in a special Friday night Literary Salon where he will read from his much anticipated second novel A Thousand Splendid Suns and then share an evening in conversation with Susanne Pari, author and Program Director for book group expo. (This will be a limited seating event Friday, June 8 at 6:30pm.)

Houston, Bird of Another Heaven; Terry Jentz, Strange Piece of Paradise; Jane Austin's Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler (film set to release January 2007), Carolyn Jourdan, Heart in the Right Place; Aimee Liu, Gaining, Diana Loevy, The Book Club Companion, Jim Lynch, The Highest Tide, Mary Mackey, The Notorious Mrs. Winston; Ron McLarty, Traveler; Peggy Orenstein, Waiting for Daisy; Marisa de los Santos, Love Walked In; Peter Sussman, Decca; and Lalita Tademy, Red River, among others.
