My book group read --- and loved --- THE MAGNIFICENT LIVES OF MARJORIE POST. We were lucky enough to have Allison Pataki join us to talk about the book during part of our discussion; her schedule has been so busy that this was something very special. We asked her lots of questions about her research. She said she was impressed with the questions and feedback from our group, some of which she had not heard before. One of our group members said that the book was so well done that it has spoiled her to find something this good as she is reading. High praise.

We love hearing from readers. I received this message from Pat, who won copies of THE PARIS LIBRARY by Janet Skeslien Charles for her book group, The Lynbrook Ladies Literary League, in our “What’s Your Book Group Reading This Month?” contest: “Wow is all I can say and my heartfelt THANKS! Our book club is celebrating its 30th year, and this is a great gift for all of us! We have been devoted fans of ReadingGroupGuides and have attended your presentations at the Rockville Centre Library. You have brought so much to our discussions with your bios and suggested discussion questions from selected authors. The pandemic has brought your expertise and love of reading even closer to us with your Zoom presentations. You never missed a beat in keeping us informed of the latest books and some inspiring author interviews.”
