New Book Discussion Egroup
- With the snows of winter encouraging me to snuggle
in with a warm drink and book, I was thinking of
the books we discussed reading at the School of
Soldier last April. And then I thought of the fun
and knowledge I got out of the woman's and BAR
email lists and thought I would combine the two by
creating a email book list so we could read and
discuss those books together. I was thinking that
the reading pace would be slow, about two weeks
for a chapter, since we all lead busy lives. I'm
hoping we would each sign up for a brief chapter
summary and come up with one guiding question to
start the discussion.
The book I do remember us agreeing to read was
"Belonging to the Army: Camp Followers and
Community during the American Revolution" Holly A.
Mayer (University of South
Carolina Press, 1996) ISBN1-57003-108-8 So I would
like to start with this one and then we
can decide what we want to tackle next.
I have created a group through the web page
egroups called Distafftextcircle. The webpage is
The membership is open to all BAR members and
anyone else who is interested in joining in a
discussion on the readings.
