Stacey Goldring, host of the monthly First Coast ConnectBook Club on 89.9 WJCT and creator of the Chapter Endnotes Bookclub generously invited me to attend one of her meetings a few months ago. What I experienced totally changed my perspective about what book clubs are and what they're supposed to be!
