Summer Book Groups

English At Large runs Book Groups in the summer at various public libraries across our service area.  Book Groups provide opportunities for intermediate to advanced English learners to practice reading, speaking, and writing skills. Small groups of 8-10 learners meet with their facilitator and group each week for 1½ hours, for a 6-week session. Everyone comes to the group having read the assigned text, and all are encouraged to bring their thoughts and questions to the group.  Facilitators will also utilize study guides and other materials to explore story concepts, word use and composition.  Past EAL Book Groups have read “The Alchemist”, “The #1 Ladies Detective Agency”, and “The Giver”, among others.
