This unique manual shows you step-by-step how to build, improve, and maintain successful, engaging book discussion groups. Chapters answer the fundamental questions: How do you build membership? Choose the right titles? Schedule and arrange meetings? Develop questions? Get free or discounted books? Provide an inviting atmosphere and setting? Planning, publicity, facilitating discussions, programming techniques, and assessment are discussed in detail. Essential advice on programming includes 15 ready-to-use discussion guides; One Book-One City program ideas; on line forums; title selection; and more. Any library starting or running book discussion groups will want this practical guide by their side.
