Since November 2006, Conversations Book Club has been changing the way that books are discusssed and read in Mississippi--- and even beyond. Already in 2007 the group has talked directly to over 40 authors through its live discussions and hosted nine authors in personal appearances.
Thanks to the partnership with Medgar Evers Library, the organization has been able to meet twice a week (Tuesdays and Fridays at 6p.m. CST), sharing its love of books with others--- and with favorable results.
Now as the summer approaches, Conversations Book Club prepares for new endeavors and exciting partnerships, thanks to the support of the state of Mississippi.
On Monday, June 4th, C. A. Webb (the founder of the book club) will be the guest for a live worldwide interview on www.artistfirst.com . He will be discussing the success of his sophomore spoken word project MY CONTROVERSY, his upcoming novella DESTINY'S CHILD, his book clubs and other projects. This will take place beginning at 5p.m. CST and will include listeners' emails. You can visit the website and click the LISTEN LIVE button to hear the discussion.
Also in June 2007, the "SUBWAY CONVERSATIONS" Book Club will launch, meeting every 2nd and 4th Thursday at 6:30p.m. at the Subway Restaurant in Pearl, MS (3000 HWY 80 E). The group will discuss books that deal with relevant social issues and relationships. Admission is free, and discounts will be given on all sandwiches.

In July 2007, the "WEDNESDAY CONVERSATIONS" Book Club will launch at the Richard Wright Library (515 W. McDowell Road), meeting every 2nd and 4th Wednesday at 6:30p.m. This group will tackle books that focus on family and relationship issues, occassionally being joined by authors either in person or via conference call. Admssion is free. Visit http://wednesdayconversations.blogspot.com or contact Richard Wright Library for more details.
Finally, July 2007 will also make more history being made for Conversations and Rankin County as C. A. Webb begins the county's first OPEN MIC NIGHT for poets and performing artists. This will take place at the Subway Restaurant in Pearl as well, beginning Saturday, July 7th. Admission is free, and discounts will be given on all sandwiches.

Im a British author and screenwriter who discovered your book group on line. It sounds very interesting so I thought theyd enjoy my latest psychological thriller called THE DAY OF THE SWANS as it keeps readers guessing until the last page and creates lively discussions.
It has an intriguing premise: if memories give us our identity, what happens if someone gives you new ones and makes you believe them?
It focuses on the disturbing relationship between a charismatic stalker and his therapist who he convinces is his long-lost sister, but is he telling the truth?
Here is a link to the publishers. I hope you like the cover. I certainly do.
Its also just been put on Amazon. com
A number of reading groups have already contacted me to ask if I would speak to them as they are arguing about who is telling the truth in the book. I do hope you order copies for your group. I would be happy to answer any questions they might have.
I look forward to hearing from you.
