The group will be meeting:

As always, discussion of the book include a nuts-and-bolts session devoted to sharing practical solutions to the problems and concerns of book discussion leaders.  Part of this discussion will focus on involving authors in book club events.  Additionall, participants can discuss what has worked with their group, what hasn't worked, and pose any questions they may want to discuss with the group.
