Marcia Fineman, Ph.D., a reading specialist for the past twenty years who holds a doctorate and has worked in schools and local communities on increasing literacy with children and adults, has completed her new book “Talking about Books”: an easy, enjoyable guide designed to assist people in beginning a book discussion group and for existing groups to extend and refine their discussions.
According to Fineman “over time, (I) realized that the most successful and enjoyable book discussion groups for (me) were those where all members used the same reading language when (we) were discussing books. In these groups, members agreed and disagreed during discussions, but when everyone understood the characteristics of a novel in the same way, the discussions were more focused, more stimulating, and more profound.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Marcia Fineman, Ph.D.’s instructional guide first describes what happens in a book discussion group, then defines the five literary characteristics of a novel and its theme, and offers suggestions about how to talk about each of these points.
“Talking about Books” offers both old and new book discussion groups a remarkably easy and enjoyable guide to creating exhilarating discussions about fiction and biographies. The section entitled “Suggested Questions to Ask when Talking about Books” lists discussion questions for each of the characteristics of a novel and reproducible “Discussion Planning Sheets” are provided for the facilitator and group members to use to record selected questions for each specific discussion. The section entitled “Guidelines for Book Discussion Meetings” is especially useful for those who would like to form a book club, or are in the process of forming one. “Talking about Books” is such a valuable resource that each group member will be eager to have a copy of their own.
Readers who wish to experience this instructional work can purchase“Talking about Books” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
