Why Use Book Group in a Bag?

“Many in our group would never have read this book on our own. Many of us really disliked this book as we read, but were drawn to finish it just to find how it ends. But, this book also prompted one of our best book discussions. The questions led us to see so much more under the surface, not just these characters that we didn’t like. Thank you.”
– response from a group reading “The Man in My Basement”
