The Heavy Medal Book Discussion Schedule
We currently have 13 volunteers for the Heavy Medal Committee. That’s plenty to ensure rich and in-depth discussion of the books on our list…but if you’d like to join us, there’s still time. See last week’s post for details and instructions.
We’ll introduce HM Committee members in a separate post this Friday. Today, though, we present the Book Discussion Schedule. This should help HM Committee members and other Heavy Medal readers to plan and prioritize and be ready to chime in on the books as they come up.
We’ll discuss the books in alphabetical order by title, which is typically how the real Committees approach it (at least it has been when I’ve served). This works especially well this year if, like me, you’re still on the waiting list for THE TOLL (because it’s almost last).
