Discussion Groups

View Upcoming Book Discussions »

Discussion groups are at the heart of Reading Together. Dozens of private book clubs discuss the Reading Together book as part of their annual schedule. Numerous joint book discussions have taken place over the years, too, such as school students with senior citizens, neighborhood organizations from across the city, and Portage and Kalamazoo city commissions, to name a few. Encourage your friends, neighbors, fellow students, or co-workers to read The American Way of Eating and Farm City. Organize your own discussion group or drop in on a community discussion group. See the calendar for discussion times and locations.
