Ah yes, it's time to write my reading group guide questions for my novel, Pictures of You, coming out this November from Algonquin. Doing reading group guides requires a different part of the brain than the writing of the novel. You have to become critical, yet not so critical that you feel as if you are writing Sparks Notes. I grew so baffled and befuddled writing mine that I began to get a little slap-happy, so in the interest of feeding my personal lunacy, I've come up with the following reading group guide questions instead:
1. Which fancy restaurant would you like to take Caroline to and why? 2. If you had to issue a restraining order against one of the characters in Pictures of You, which one would it be and why?3. What fabulous gift do you think the author would most appreciate and why haven't you sent it to her yet?4. If you could play matchmaker, which character from this novel would you fix up with characters from other Leavitt novels?5. If Caroline did not write another novel, which profession do you think would best suit her: dentist, animal portrait painter or exhibitionist?
