Goal: to read and discuss books across a variety of genres in order to better assist our patrons Format: meeting every other month, we will read a common benchmark book and a free-choice book in a chosen genre, then discuss them in reader's advisory terms
The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 17 @3pm. The benchmark title is Sharpe's Tiger by Bernard Cornwell. Participants are asked to choose a second historical fiction title that does NOT focus on women/women's lives. When reading your second title, please make note of the appeal factors and how it compares to other titles we have read, including the benchmark.
