December 2023 Spotlight: The Forestry Book Club
Our December 2023 Spotlight loves to read and discuss environmental books!
The Forestry Book Club is made up of current and former staff from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Forestry Division. We’ve been meeting virtually for the past four years after discovering that many of us love reading and talking about what we’ve read! Membership in our group is extremely flexible and changes for each meeting, with two staff members serving as organizers and facilitators. We include a meeting announcement in our internal newsletter,
Reading Group Choices is pleased to share the Women’s National Book Association (WNBA) Great Group Reads 2020 list, part of their National Reading Group Month initiative!
This annual month-long celebration provides an opportunity for reading groups worldwide to celebrate their accomplishments and plan for the future. It’s also a perfect time to join or start a reading group! Every October, WNBA organizes events nationwide and announces an annual list of book selections for reading groups: Great Group Reads.
November 2023 Spotlight: The RaRa Sisters Book Club
Our November 2023 Spotlight is celebrating 23 years as a book club!
The RaRa (Readers Anonymous) Sisters Book Club was created in 2000. The picture is from our Roaring 20s party that celebrated our 20 years together. It’s crazy to believe that we have been together for 23 years! We’ve had many adventures together and have read nearly 150 books. Together, we have supported one another through many of life’s events: some happy, some scary, and some tragic, but we’re always there for one another.
We’re excited to bring back the book group city tour blog posts! Our next stop is Indianapolis, where we explore bookstores, the public library, and more.
Did you know that this capital city earned its lovable nickname “Indy” not only because “Indianapolis” is a mouthful, but also because of all the independent bookstores present in the city?
Okay, we’re totally kidding about Indy’s namesake, but we’re not kidding about it being a hub for independent bookstores. In the past two years alone, nine bookstores in Indianapolis have opened or been announced, including Loudmouth Books, which just opened to the public on September 30,
