Book Club Study

ARRT Book Club StudyThe Adult Reading Round Table provides all members access to our quarterly Book Club Study, which combines a book discussion and leadership training.

We give library book discussion leaders the chance to sit back and enjoy being discussion participants while also offering a forum for sharing questions and practical solutions to the problems and concerns of book group leaders. This “nuts and bolts” training session is offered at the end of each discussion.

Both the traditional book discussion and the leadership training session are moderated by a member of the ARRT Steering Committee. Upcoming discussions are posted on this website and members are also invited to join discussions by email. If you are a member and wish to attend the discussion, you must register in advance and secure your own copy of the book.

With a rotating cast of leaders, titles, and locations, we hope our members will find a discussion that fits their schedule.
