What's so great about book clubs? We want to hear whether you go for the conversation or the wine. Montana Center for the Book staff and unrepentant book club members discuss why we join book clubs, the makings of the best conversations, and what keeps us coming back month after month, even when we haven't finished the book. Rita Collins, proprietor of St. Rita’s Amazing Book Apothecary; Caroline Patterson, director of the Missoula Writing Collaborative and a long-time member of a husband & wife book group; and Barbara Theroux, creator of Fact & Fiction bookstore and book group-organizer extraordinaire share their stories. Join Big Sky Reads Facebook group for book club members and those who love them to continue the conversation online
