Now in its twelfth year, Great Group Reads is a highly regarded and anticipated annual resource for book clubs, reading groups, and individual facilitators to choose books, and for bookstores and libraries to recommend books.
Twenty top titles are chosen each September for book discussion groups, and in time for National Reading Group Month in October.
Titles are selected for literary merit, to elicit lively conversations about an array of timely and provocative topics, and to spotlight works from independent presses, as well as larger publishing houses.
Each year, Great Group Reads reads submissions of over 100 works of fiction and nonfiction published or to be published within that year. Those titles are read by seasoned selectors and winnowed down to a list of 20 top titles – our Great Group Reads of the year.
Great Group Reads is part of the National Reading Group Month initiative of the Women’s National Book Association.
