About Book Discussion Guides

A book discussion group's leader is faced with the daunting task of making sure that the discussion gets started, keeps going and is engaging.

Each guide includes:

  • A brief author biography;
  • A summary of the book;
  • Seven or more questions about the book with thoroughly developed answers;
  • Further Reading suggestions – titles that may be attractive to those who have enjoyed the book covered in the discussion guide.
