Planning Ahead: National Reading Group Month

Posted by webmaster
Mark your calendars! The third annual National Reading Group Month is taking place in October. Sponsored by the Women's National Book Association (WNBA), events will take place across the country in association with the organization's 10 chapters --- including one in Charlotte, North Carolina, where a chapter was launched earlier this year.

The National Reading Group Month signature event is being held at the Nashville Public Library Downtown on Saturday, October 10th, as part of the Southern Festival of Books. Featured authors at the breakfast and book signing are Marie Brenner (Apples and Oranges: My Brother and Me, Lost and Found), Holly Goddard Jones (Girl Trouble: Stories), Perri Klass (The Mercy Rule), Inman Majors (The Millionaires) and Kathryn Stockett (The Help).
