Come Participate in a FREE Book Discussion for Book Discussion Leaders With Me!

Are you a book discussion leader who never gets to be a participant? Do you want the chance to talk about some issues with your group with other book discussion leaders? Do you work at an IL library?

If you answered yes, you are in luck! See the details below for a FREE training I am running in a few weeks.  You can even attend from one of the RAILS video conference locations. So you don't have to come all the way to Burr Ridge to still participate.

The book is a quick read too, so there is plenty of time to read it still.

The details from RAILS are below.
Becky Spratford of RA For All will be offering a program called “Book Discussion for Book Discussion Leaders” on Tuesday, October 6, 2015, 2:00 to 4:00 PM.  Becky will be at the RAILS Burr Ridge service center, and we will video conference to three other locations: RAILS Coal Valley, RAILS East Peoria and Vernon Area Public Library District – Annex.   
Program description: Leading a book discussion group is one of the most personally and professionally rewarding things we do at work; however, it is an extremely challenging job too. No one understands this better than Becky Spratford who has been leading book discussions groups for over 14 years. Join her, and a room full of your book discussion colleagues, as we discuss the creepy, historical novel, THE WINTER PEOPLE by Jennifer McMahon. This program will give you the chance to sit back and enjoy being a discussion participant while also offering a forum for sharing questions and practical solutions to the problems and concerns of book group leaders.
Participants are encouraged to read THE WINTER PEOPLE by Jennifer McMahon before this session in order to fully participate in the discussion.
