    Not sure how to ask what I'm thinking in my head...ha!

    11:07am Tara Smith:

    i have an idea of what you mean

    11:08am Tara Smith:

    could it just all fall under "how do you structure" or "how do you plan and conduct your discussion meetings"?

    11:08am Jessica Brown-MD (non-member):

    Maybe, How do you prepare and lead the discussion time?

    11:08am Jessica Brown-MD (non-member):

    Yeah--exactly

    11:11am Jessica Brown-MD (non-member):

    Q1: Q1: What books have you used successfully in book discussions and what should you look for in choosing a book?
    Q2: In what ways have you experimented with non-traditional book discussions (outside the library, mixed age group, etc)?
    Q3: How do you attract new attendees and encourage participation?
    Q4: What additional materials and activities do you offer at your book discussions?
    Q5: How do you include children who haven't read the book but still come to the discussion?

    11:11am Jessica Brown-MD (non-member):

    Do those work, Amy?

    11:11am Amy Graves (non-member):

    maybe.. Q6: Do you plan for and structure your discussions, or is it more free-form? How does your style contribute to the discussion's success?
