It's time for March nominations! There is no theme this month, but please make sure that the book has been written by a woman, is at least 50 years old, and has not been previously read by the group (check the read shelf).

Nominations are 'til the 12th of this month. They are limited to two per person. Please also state whether or not you're available to lead the discussion.

I read this last year. It was an incredible book.

* Moderato cantabile by Marguerite Duras, published in 1958, 122 pages.
* The Open Door by Latifa Zayyat, published in 1960, 398 pages. You can read an extract here http://al-hakawati.net/english/storie...

I can lead on either if they are selected.

Eileen | 17 comments Hello. I voted for the Duras book but I also noted that it is not 50 years old. If that is the rule, that is fine, but I was surprise to see this book on the nomination list. I read Duras' The Lover" and it was excellent.

Eileen | 17 comments Oh, ok, I just read Cam's message. It must have been a reissue date for Duras' book that said 1985. Thanks!
