I’ve been asked if book clubs can be third places. Not exactly, but there is a connection worth exploring. I was delighted to hear that a book club in Indiana (the state where I was born, making me a Hoosier, I guess) will be discussing The Great Good Place next month. Their order of 20 copies encouraged me to think about discussion questions, and we’ll soon have materials for book clubs. I hope to get some feedback, too, for the new edition.
