Hi everyone!

Anyone interested in joining online discussions of books relating to Native issues and/or by Native writers? A couple of people have started a book club at the new site of NativeWeb, they came up with a list of book recommendations and have set a schedule by which they all try to have read a certain book and discuss it at their message board. I probably won't get around to read these books at the given time, but maybe some of you would be interested? The site is at (link below) and you need to get a password to get in. To find the book discussion board, go to message boards, then to special interest conferences, and there is the book club conference.

Below is the schedule that Monique and John have just announced there, and they emphasized that everyone is welcome to join in.
