The Red Book by Deborah Kogan

Is there a reunion in your future?  You might just enjoy the Deborah Kogan’s zany novel, The Red Book, focusing on the antics at a 20th anniversary re-union of  the 1989 graduating class at Harvard. The book’s title comes from Harvard’s class reports that have been continuously published for each class prior to their every 5 year reunions.   The real ‘red book’ has been published for at least 150 years.  The assignment?  Please tell your classmates, in a paragraph or two, what you would like them to know about your activities, interests, family life, career, etc., concentrating on the past five years. No résumés, please, and first-person narratives only.  Kogan deftly intersperses her characters’ red book reports between the events culminating with the reunion weekend. The Red Book would make a great chick flic.  To find an interview with the author click here.  Class reunions are frequently featured in fiction.  If you enjoy this title, try any of the other 16 titles here.  Family reunions are even more frequently fictional topics.  Browse this list of 40 titles here.
