Reading Circles – LIVE CHAT

reading circles

Hi Everyone!! This week we have something extra special – Reading Circles Goes LIVE via CHAT! Hopefully, by now you’ve had a chance to read our pick, Jodi Picoult’s book, The Tenth Circle. We’ll be discussing how Picoult works her magic and see what we can learn as writers by reading from those who do it best.


(I should tell you: I picked this book up at the bookstore and started thumbing through the first pages. I got so sucked in, I read over half of it just sitting there in the store!)

The chat will begin Tuesday, December 4 at 8 p.m. CST.
