The Lioness Book Club Kit

The Lioness provides a meaty look at what makes us animals in what we call civilization—and what makes us human when we’re out in the wild.” —Los Angeles Times

#1 New York Times bestselling author of The Flight Attendant, Chris Bohjalian takes readers on another wild ride in The Lioness. Join Katie Barstow and her entourage on a luxury safari to celebrate her honeymoon. There’s a kerosene powered ice maker, canvas bathtubs, real beds, and plenty of opportunities to photograph wildlife, but everything changes when the group is violently kidnapped, and they find themselves just hoping to survive. Full of twists and turns and plenty of edge-of-your-seat suspense, the novel is also deep and thought provoking, delving into history, politics, and human psychology, and giving your book club plenty to discuss.

We’ve created a Book Club Kit to enhance your meeting complete with a behind-the-scenes look at Bohjalian’s research, suggested reading, and cocktails fit for the Serengeti. Buckle up and set off on your adventure; we promise you’ll make it out alive.
