Your Questions About Book Club Lists

Sandy asks…

Is there a website that a local book club can set up its schedule and book list online for its members?

We want to be able to access our list of upcoming books, dates, times, and maybe even proposed books for future meetings. We are a face-to-face group, not an online book club.

richmama answers:

Yahoo groups is your best bet for this, as long as you have at least one person that can run the site.

William asks…

Should all high school book lists be standardized to the Oprah’s Book Club?

At least get rid of all that Ayn Rand and George Orwell crap…

richmama answers:

Absolutely not. She is obviously a liberal and attends the same church as Obama did when he resided in Chicago. I believe the test book should have equal representation of the conservatives and liberals. But unfortunately the scales favor the liberals point of view especially in higher education.

John asks…

Is there a website that lists authors by state? I need help for my book club!?

I am trying to start a book club at my high school, and I wanted to try and locate some authors that could come to my school, for my book club. Does anyone know how to find out what authors for teens live in texas or near texas?

richmama answers:

Try here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_people_from_Texas#Literature

See if any of the living authors have anything you’re interested in, and go from there 🙂

Edit: This website might be better: http://www.cynthialeitichsmith.com/lit_resources/authors/texasauth-ill.html
There’s a link to the second half of the list at the side of the page.
