Good books for book groups–Great Group Reads Selections

If you haven’t heard about Great Group Reads, well, it’s the first year that this list of books selected for their discussability is making an appearance. I volunteered to coordinate the group of readers for this new National ggr_logoReading Group Month initiative. It was hectic but fun! We were ten readers from around the country; we all read a group of books, discussed them virtually and chose nine titles, fiction and nonfiction. The list is below, but here’s a link to the Great Group Reads website with links to information about each book, including links to discussion guides.
