Discussion Questions

January 25, 2016

My passion for reading does not end with the written word. I participate in quite a few book clubs in the greater Madison WI area, and I lead a few of them. To encourage you and your friends to also discuss these books; below you can find discussion questions for many books I’ve read. Take these, use them directly, modify them– whatever you need to have a rousing discussion!

If you are a member of the Verona Area Concert Band book club, scroll to the bottom of the page for our discussion questions.

Happy reading!
