"Cover to Cover" is an Omaha Metropolitan area reading group established in 2008. Our group hosts (2) forums for book discussions.
Forum (1) "Cover to Cover" is designed for discussions of a single work selected by attendees from the previous book discussion. The selection is usually a popular culture work or a classic; the group historically meets for 1 hour on the last Sunday of each month and alternates between fiction and non-fiction. Forum (2) "Syntopical" is designed for discussions of multiple works in the nature of Mortimer Adler's Level 4 syntopical reading. The selections are centralized and influenced by a cohort. Attendees are encouraged to draw on a personal history of reading experiences and knowledge to form comparisons and contrasts to the works selected for analysis. The group meets for 1 1/2 hours every two months.
Each meet-up is enjoyable and provides a rare opportunity to share insights, and we always look forward to meeting new readers.
