The DRS Book Club.

Pittsburgh, PA – DRS Architects: The DRS Book Club.

About every six weeks since 2013, a group of DRS women have gathered over lunch to pore over a book, discuss plots and characters, and rate our latest pick. The selection of that book has been rotated among the members, which causes each of us to read books that we might not otherwise have read. It’s been engaging reading.

We’ve read a wide variety, including:

Architectural historical fiction: The Devil in the White City by Erik Larsen

Non-fiction: Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof

Podcast: Serial by Sarah Koenig

Comedy: Yes Please by Amy Poehler

A book about books: The Storied Life of AJ Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin

Futuristic: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

Slavery and Abolition: The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

Parallel Universe: The Post Birthday World by Lionel Shriver

WWII: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

Our next pick? Ashley Solomon, who peruses each selection with amazing attention to detail, has chosen The Holding by Norton Graham which she describes as “an Irish murder mystery”. Could be a fatal fascination; we’ll let you know.
