But today, I want to talk about the Leadership Topic designated for this meeting.
From the ARRT book discussion site:
As always, discussion of the book includes a nuts-and-bolts session devoted to sharing practical solutions to the problems and concerns of book discussion leaders.
The Leadership Training Discussion, led by Elizabeth Hopkins, will offer participants a chance to share their favorite under the radar book discussion gems. Please come ready to book talk a title or two that worked really well with your group. Try to focus on less obvious choices. We will turn the notes into a Library Aware bibliography that everyone can share with their book groups. Also, feel free to bring questions about specific titles you might want to try but aren't sure about to see if anyone has tried them already.I will not be able to make this meeting tomorrow, so today I am contributing a title to list we are trying to make to help every book club leader.
As my under the radar title, I want to suggest The Ghost Map by Steven Johnson. You can click here for my full book discussion report, but I also made it easy for you [and for tomorrow's notetaker] and have attached it below.
Look for the full crowd sourced list of under the radar book discussion titles that worked surprisingly well coming in August.
