Community Book Discussion Groups

One of the main goals of One Book - One Lincoln is to encourage residents to read and openly discuss the same book. Talking about great literature with others often adds richness and depth to the experience of reading. We encourage you to join other members of the community in discussing The Kite Runner during September, October and November 2005. Everyone is welcome; there is no need to pre-register. This complete list of official Community Discussion Groups will also appear in the Resource Guide, scheduled for the September 19th issue of the Lincoln Journal Star.
