Program Description

Event Details

Come for coffee and stay for a conversation with Page Berger of Barrett Bookstore. She will lead an informal discussion on the best techniques for leading a book group. Perhaps it's your turn to lead the discussion in your book group. Or it's possible you moderate the conversation each time you meet. 

You'll Learn

  • How to stay on track.
  • How to ask the right questions 
  • When to change the subject
  • Make sure that everyone has had a chance to talk

Page will lead the discussion, answer questions, and will share tips and tricks that every book group leader should know.
