Reading Group Guides Newsletter

While it used to be a fact that book groups did not meet during the summer, we are hearing from more and more readers that summer does not affect their meeting plans. We also hear from others who, like my mom, join a book group where they vacation over the summer. Many resort communities schedule author events to bring readers together, knowing that they have a captive audience on vacation. When I was at the Avalon Free Public Library two weeks ago, I kicked off their Summer Reading Series where they will be bringing in authors on Wednesday evenings, including Daniel Silva and Meg Donohue. Above is a photo of me at that event, with Erin Brown from their staff (on the left) and some local avid readers, who are all and readers.
