On any given afternoon or evening, hundreds of book groups are meeting in living rooms, libraries, coffee houses, and kitchens to share their love-or hate-of a book. Interests and reading lists vary tremendously, but in each successful group, members are linked by a passion for books and a fierce loyalty to each other. The Book Group Book contains essays from special-interest groups, groups with professional leaders or sponsors, new groups, and groups that have been meeting for decades. Book lovers will learn how groups are organized and find inspiration and insight from the strengths, weaknesses, and special qualities that make book groups a treasured part of their members' lives.
