Feature Friday: Goodreads Book Club!

By Heather Allen

An age of madnessThe WNBA-NYC chapter is proud to present a new book club! Inspired by “October is National Reading Group Month,” we have created a group online that is a forum for discussion about the Great Group Reads selection in 2012. Our goal is to read two books a month. Of course, you don’t have to read both books if you participate, but discussions on each will be on our Goodreads Great Group Reads WNBA-NYC website. Anyone who is interested is welcome to join the group and find the WNBA-NYC on Goodreads.

Join here!

The Art of FieldingThe books for this month are The Art of Fielding, by Chad Harbach, and An Age of Madness, by David Maine (remember him from the National Reading Group Month author panel in October?). If you have read either of these books, we would love for you to let us know your opinions about them, and even facilitate a discussion! Although the schedule says the books are finished by the end of the month, we hope the discussion can continue past that date.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other WNBA members (or potential members), as well as have a lively discussion about some fantastic books! If you have any questions, please feel free to email Heather at socialmedia@wnba-nyc.org.


  1. this is really awesome, and will join soon as I can…and can get the books. Thanks Heather!

  2. Great idea and I will join. I read An Age of Madness but since I’ve read several books since, my mind isn’t sharp enough about it. I’ll join the discussion and hopefully that will kick it into gear. I do remember it being gripping.

  3. Great idea!! more soon ! Caroline
