John, a librarian and book group leader in northern California, offers a manual on launching and running book discussion groups for librarians. She begins with the history of groups; discusses how to recruit members, choose books, find a time and place, and create publicity; and suggests ways to lead and manage a discussion, book an author and plan an event, and lead an online group. In addition, she provides ten recommended books and guides to using them, while connecting some to seasonal events. These guides contain plot summaries, author biographies, supplementary materials, and discussion questions. Other resources include an annotated bibliography and list of online tools, list of organizations, and a checklist for partner programs. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
