A Novel Idea is a book discussion group that enables people in the parish to come together once a month to share their love of reading fiction. All participants read and discuss the selected book, exchanging their ideas and opinions in a forum characterized by mutual respect. The facilitators prepare discussion questions, provide background on the authors, encourage participation of those present, and implement the book selection process.
