I recently posted on Facebook that I felt like doing a re-read of Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life.
One thing lead to another, and I ended up forming a reading group. We’re still in the beginning stages, getting the word out to anyone who might be interested.
If you’re interested in joining a group of writers and readers who will be reading Bird by Bird together, with (hopefully!) lots of fun and inspiring discussions, please come by and join our group here: Bird by Bird reading group.
The group is hosted at Facebook, but all that’s required is that you have a Facebook account. I’ve made the group closed, so that we will have privacy once our group discussions start: with a closed group, only members can see posts and discussions.
If you’ve never read Bird by Bird, I highly recommend it, especially if you’re a writer or interested in writing.
It’s a very inspirational and motivating book, and reading it in a group should generate some equally inspiring and motivating discussions. Whether you’d like to read the book for the very first time, or have been thinking about doing a reread, please come by and join us!
And I’ve never run a reading group before, so for those of you with reading group experience, I’d love to hear your suggestions and tips!
