Book Club Opportunities Provided by Missouri Reading Association this Summer
by Dr. Sam Bommmarito
The Missouri Literacy Assocation has some exciting book club opportinities this summer. Two of the three events are completely free and open to all. The only cost is getting your book for the book club. The June event , which features Dr. Tim Rasinski is free to all MLA members or $20 for non-members. So if you join MLA before you register for that book club, the book club is free. Registration for the MLA summer book clubs will begin May 7, at 7 am CDT. This link let’s you register and also gives you links to purchase the books for each of the book clubs:
Here is an overview of the summer’s events taken from the MLA webpage:
BTW- the last session of the first two books will include a question and answer session with the author. The final book club will be a single session covering two books and the authors of those books will be present. So overall, this is an opportunity to meet and talk with all four authors if you attend all of the MLA summer book clubs.
I have already done blogs about two of the authors who will be doing our summer book clubs. Here is the one about Tim Rasinski:
Here is the one about Eric Litwin. It includes a link to a video interview I did as part of the blog. Eric talks about his book, the Joy of Reading on that video and also provides a preview of one of his newest songs! Do have a look and a listen:
By way of full disclosure I am the current president of MLA. My term will be up later this month. I plan to attend all four book clubs this summer and hope to see you there!
Happy Reading and Writing!
