Monthly Author Reads

This is a group where we highlight one author a month with each month's author decided by group members' suggestions. During that month, you can read one or more books by the author or just jump in to discuss books you have already read by that person!

Current author: February: George Bernard Shaw

Forthcoming authors:
March: Sir Walter Scott


The list of the authors we've discussed can be found here. You are always welcome to join the older discussions as well.

Please check out the Author Theme Reads group for in-depth, long-term discussions on specific authors. (Note that group is currently 'dormant' and in need of an administrator.)
