    For Children’s, I was going to guess Rowling and either C.S. Lewis or A.A. Milne., but it’s only a guess.

    Children’s — one of them has to be J. K. Rowling, the other. . . Roald Dahl?

    Classics — has to be 1984 by George Orwell

    Book Club — Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg

    Flumoxed. Except #1 has to be Rowling. And 2 has to be 1984, but I wouldn’t have guessed it without help.
