We’ll all been there: You read a book that blows you away and all you want to do is preach it to everyone you know. It could be a novel that keeps you up at night, turning the pages, or an imperative and pivotal text, like The Climate Report: The National Climate Assessment—Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States. You want to increase awareness, and more so, to discuss the book. Why not start a reading group? Easier said than done, but thankfully there are plenty of resources to help get you started. We’ve rounded up a list of questions to consider and steps to explore to help take the discussion to the next level.
