What profession are you in?

I teach elementary school.

Please list at least three books that you would be interested in reading and discussing with the group? (Note you must answer this question with some specific titles)

Doubt is Their Product / How Industry's Assault on Science Threatens Your Health, Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, Walt Whitman's America: A Cultural Biography

Have you been a member of other book clubs and what did you like or not like about those groups?

I've been a member of many groups over the years. The most important aspect for a successful group seems to be an understanding that the 'floor' is to be shared- when one voice dominates, no fun is left for others. I also like when people talk about the book's content with some specificity.


I want to read more non-fiction and this will be motivating.

What Rhonda is saying about this Meetup Group

Finally! A book club that has members who read the book! Scott serves well as a very focused facilitator and keeps the discussion moving.
