The Exoteric Book Club selected for its monthly read the novel, Sleeping Beauties, by the father/son duo, Stephen King and Owen King.  What a disappointment. The 700 pages of mostly character descriptions that led nowhere were so pervasive, they overwhelmed the plot an...

Barack and Michelle Obama are role models to be emulated.  Because we love and admire them so much for their inspiration, let’s turn the word Obama into a verb.  When we think of hard working, never giving up, succeeding, achieving goals, winning, and doing it with hon...

The Exoteric Book Club had a great discussion about the Room by Emma Donoghue.  The book was an excellent depiction of the plight of a woman abducted for sexual purposes, with no concern for human decency, and kept in a garden shed in the back yard for 7 years.  She wa...
