Description

In the last few years, and especially since the BBC's Big Read, the reading group phenomenon has swept the country. But how do you go about finding a reading group in your area, or if you are involved in setting one up, how should it be run and what books should be selected? The guide includes chapters on: Setting up and Running a Group; Readers Guides; Synopses to aid a quick choice of book for discussion; Themes, each of which is accompanied by a brief introductory paragraph, followed by a simple list of cross-referenced titles; Resources - an annotated list of useful magazines, books, websites etc. and Suggested Further Reading - a list of additional, highly recommended titles for discussion.show more
