October is National Reading Group Month , designed to salute reading groups everywhere. 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. It's the perfect time to join or start a group. 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. Check their website for some Great Group Reads .
