Discussion of the book will be followed by a nuts-and-bolts session devoted to sharing practical solutions to the
problems and concerns of book discussion leaders.  Participants can discuss what has worked with their groups,
what hasn’t worked, and pose any questions they may want to discuss to with group.  The meeting will conclude
by
