A 'book club' (sometimes referred to as a book discussion group, sometimes as a 'reading group') is simply a group of people who get together on a regular basis to discuss books. They can be an excellent way to enjoy books more and challenge your mind, they can also encourage you to read more, or to read books that you might not normally choose. Most people join a book club, or start their own, in order to have fun, make friends, stimulate the brain cells and meet like-minded people!
Lynette Olson, Coordinator of Adult Services, invites you to join her at the Emporia Public Library large meeting room on Wednesday, August 19 at 6:30 p.m. to talk about book clubs in their many forms. Learn how to get started and find tips about structuring your meetings, facilitating a great discussion, and finding the right books. Lynette will share with you materials, websites, andother resources that will help to develop a successful book club.
