What makes a good book club? Is it the choice of books for discussion? The time of day? The diversity of members? The choices of wine?  Why do women make up the majority of book clubs? Is it verboten for men to participate in book clubs? This week in #litchat MediaMonday we’re going to discuss what ingredients take a book club beyond superficial chitchat and into relevant literary discussion.
