The Book Discussion Group
Reading is usually a solitary activity, but it doesn't have to be. If you like what you read, it's only natural to want to share it. A book discussion group is a forum where readers can come together and talk about books and the reading experience. Groups can be organized in a variety of ways. The ACE book group selects "People of the Book" by Geraldine Brooks for its first discussion (October). This will be followed by "The Plot vs. America" by Phillip Roth (December). Please read the book in advance and join the class prepared to discuss.
