The Fall Kick Off for the GAR was last night on our local CPTV station. The books on the list have been divided by five tags: Who Am I, Heroes, Villains & Monsters, What We Do for Love and Other Worlds. These topics will be the subject of book discussions on the next fiveTuesday evenings at 8pm on CPTV - 9/18, 9/25, 10/2, 10/9, and 10/16. We'll see if we can get the book divisions before tonight's meeting at the library. We can discuss which books should be tagged by the PBS tags and how the GAR is working out for you. We'll end the discussion by voting for our favorite title! (You can vote more than once and you don't have to vote for the same book each time!)
