I was surprised at the interest this series of programs drew. In the past, “learning” type adult programs have had very sparse attendance and our only other book club has a steady but small group (and never draws in new people). I did not expect to fill my seats every time… but I did. I also didn’t expect the open minded and respectful discussions. I really enjoyed hearing all the different perspectives and life experiences and I enjoyed seeing people who wouldn’t normally talk getting to know and appreciate each other. It was a really great experience for everyone involved.
