Archives - Reading Group Guides Newsletter

We know that many book groups would like to chat with authors --- and many authors would like to Skype with readers --- but they are just not sure how to handle the tech aspects of this.

After hearing about my group’s Skype chat with Martha Hall Kelly about LOST ROSES, a reader wrote asking if we could share how my book group did a Skype chat that was viewed through a television.

For many, the chance to go to a book festival and mingle with readers and other authors is a great opportunity. I have been to a number of festivals through the years; this year I went to an event that is 11 years old, but is new to me: the Tucson Festival of Books. I had the chance to meet some of our readers there --- and one of them, Muriel Logan, wrote a terrific blog about the event for us. We also put together a photo gallery of the panels I moderated, along with the authors I saw and the readers I met. You can read more commentary from me about the Festival in the newsletter from last week. Since I know that some of you get that newsletter, I do not want to repeat myself here.
