Apr 2001: Work, and the work ethic (relevant titles?) May 2001: Dorothy B. Hughes: is she or isn't she? Jun 2001: Howard Browne (Paul Pine series, etc.)

Having a theme for a month, where people can read any book by a particular author or in a certain series or on a certain topic, is easier all around than the old book-of- the-month readings we'd do. It brings up a lot more discussion on the list and it doesn't tie everyone to a certain book that may be hard for them to find. I encourage everyone to read something related to the theme of the month and mention it on the list. All the regular RARA-AVIS talk goes on as well, of course.

If these theme months are popular we can continue them. Suggestions for future themes are welcome.
