Does your book discussion group have difficulty coming up with titles? Does your group spend too little time talking about the book and too much time deciding what to read the next month? Is your group having a five minute book discussion followed by 55 minutes of talk about other things?
The St. Louis County Library's Book Discussion Kit collection may be just the fix. The book kit collection has over 300 titles consisting of historical fiction, current fiction, non-fiction (that reads like fiction) and mysteries. The kit includes not only books but a readers' guide. The guide contains book reviews, discussion questions and author information which may help your group stay focused. Hopefully there are a few or many titles in the book kit collection that your group will enjoy. You can view available titles here. Some groups have six months planned out so when they meet they actually discuss the book they came to discuss! I would be happy to help your group so give me a call at 314-994-3300.
