Reading Group Choices has added two features aimed at making group discussions "lively
and interesting," as the company puts it.
A new author/reading group discussion contest allows reading groups to register
online for a chance to have one of the authors in the 12th edition of Reading Group
Choices talk with the group via speaker phone. Each month six reading groups
win; Reading Group Choices selects the author and helps set up the meeting. Authors
available are listed in Reading Group Choices with an icon.
The new On the Bookcase program provides commentary for reading groups about books,
authors, publishing trends and reading group trends. The first On the Bookcase discusses
Writers on the Air: Conversations About Books by Donna Seaman (Paul Dry
Books, $24.95, 1589880218), interviews of authors that Seaman conducted on her twice-a-month
Open Books radio show.
