Please remember that this is not only your chance to be a participant [and not the leader for once] in a book discussion, but also, we have plenty of time for everyone to discuss the problems and issues they are currently having with their groups. For example, last time we had a therapeutic and useful discussion of the problems patrons create in regards to the serving [or not serving] of food at book club.
Speaking of last time, if you cannot make it, or are not a member and just like to use us for our notes [don’t worry, we don’t mind, in fact, we encourage this behavior], we have the notes for past discussions here [most immediately past] and here [archived]. We separate them out by the notes on the discussion of the books vs the notes about our designated leadership topic. This means you can more easily target the information that is most useful to you.
From the email we sent to members with links and details:
On 05.03.17, the ARRT Book Club Study will be gathering to discuss The Yiddish Policemen's Union by Michael Chabon. You can find details about the book, location, and discussion on the website here.
We'll be having a unique location this time around:
National University of Health Sciences Library in Lombard05.03.17, Wednesday2-4pm
A tour of the library, our first academic discussion site, will be available after the discussion.
The leadership topic, lead by Bill Stephens, will be about how to recruit new members while retain current members. However, bring any other questions or topics you'd like to discuss about leading book groups!
Please RSVP to Debbie Walsh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All current members are welcome to attend! If you need to renew your membership, you can find information here.
Also, please remember that the notes for previous discussions can also be found on the website! We'll announce when the notes for this discussion are available as well.
