Book Discussion Groups

I Am a Man

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 I Am a Man during September, October and November. Everyone is welcome; there will be no need to pre-register.

[NOTE: The list of discussion opportunities may continue to grow as we hear from additional book discussion groups. Please revisit this page for updated information as One Book - One Lincoln continues.]
