Virtual Book Clubs

Anne Jordan of Governing.com blogs about some of the latest activities happening with the US government's "One Book, One City" initiative.

C.S. Lewis once said/wrote something to the effect of "We read to know we are not alone." Books really do connect people, and it's always fun to hear of such connections. Here's a quick snippet from Jordan's comments:

I just learned of a new approach the Chicago Public Library is taking with its selection for 2006, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Aleksandr Solzhenitzyn: Chicagoans who read the book can engage in online discussions with participating residents in their sister city of Moscow.
