Join the Madison Public Library's Reading and Discussion Group

Good books bring people together. Consider all the people who have come together to read and discuss the books promoted by Oprah's Book Club, or all the people here in Madison who read Fahrenheit 451 for the Big Read in April.

October is National Reading Group Month. Its expressed goals are to celebrate the joys of shared reading, strengthen the community of the book, and promote a more literate, engaged community.

Naturally, the Madison Public Library shares those goals. So, there could be no better time to invite all interested readers to participate in a reading and discussion group at the Public Library. If this invitation appeals to you, let me know. I'm in the process of collecting titles for discussion and arranging a schedule. All suggestions, comments, and ideas are welcome. You can sign up at the Library, or reply to this blog. Please include your name, address, and a telephone number.

I think it would be great to have such an overwhelming response that we had to have two or three groups to accommodate everyone who is interested.
