Welcome, book lovers!

Reading groups are proving that good books bring people together. National Reading Group Month salutes reading groups. It fosters their growth and promotes the love of literature. It's an opportunity for reading groups to reflect on their accomplishments and plan for the future — the perfect time to join or start a group.

On this site you'll find the story behind National Reading Group Month, a calendar of nation-wide events, and resources and tips for enhancing book discussions. Whether you're a reading group member, author, bookseller, librarian, or publishing industry professional, get involved in National Reading Group Month. Celebrate the joy of shared reading.

National Reading Group Month is an initiative of the Women's National Book Association (WNBA). Founded in 1917, WNBA promotes literacy, a love of reading, and women's roles in the community of the book.

The 'Great Group Reads' is a wonderful resource for any bookseller, librarian, book club member or anyone who loves to read. Wonderful books that make great discussion are brought to light by this valuable program.

— Sally Brewster, Owner, Park Road Books

— Bill Ott, Editor and Publisher, Booklist
