SCBWI-CenCal Region (CCAL) Book Talk Online




Book Talk
is a monthly book discussion group taking place on the Ventura/Santa Barbara/San Luis Obispo/Kern SCBWI listserv. As the facilitator of Book Talk, Lynn Becker polls members for interests, chooses books for discussion, schedules when the books will be discussed, and kicks off discussions on the first of each month. Readers may join in anytime during the month with comments, questions, or anything else they care to contribute about the featured book.
Books are chosen to reflect a variety of genres. Lynn says, "We try to discuss them from both the pleasure of the reading experience, as well as to address points of interest to ourselves as writers."
Book Talk is open to all members of Southern California SCBWI who are signed up for the regional listserv.
