This month we are reading Corpsing by Sophie White.

Let's spice things up and read an essay collection. I have not yet read a book by Sophie White, and I am very excited about giving their writing a go. For me, Corpsing is the obvious choice to start with; it deals with topics I have struggled with in the past and that I think should be talked about more often. Quoting the book, it is about "the horrors of grief, addiction, mental illness, and the casual and sometimes hilarious cruelty of life."

Another reason why I chose this book is that my in-person book club is reading it. And the author is joining our meeting at the beginning of June! If you have questions you would like me to ask the author, send them my way.


To join the Bright Reads book club all you need to do is:

  1. Get the book.

  2. Start reading the book.

  3. Join the conversation by leaving a comment below.

  4. Join the conversation by replying to the pinned post by @apmarketingie on Twitter.

  5. Join the conversation through our newsletter.


I anticipate that difficult topics will be discussed this month. No topics are off limits. From my experience, brighter days often only come after groundbreaking ones. Let's open space for conversations about what is upsetting us so that we can then move forward.

Have a bright read!
