      Yes, as Tim Glas suggests, TRA chapters would be logical sponsors,
      organizers of such book groups. There are currently chapters in Long
      Island, the DC area, New England (Boston area mostly), Texas (mostly
      Dallas area), and Tennessee (Nashville). A chapter will soon be started in
      Atlanta.
