Let's Talk About It

Let's Talk About It

Since 1985, Let’s Talk About It has been bringing adult reading discussion groups together with humanities scholars in Idaho’s public libraries to discuss fine literature. These book readings and discussions explore American values, history, culture, aging, classics, and much more.

The presentation by and interaction with a program scholar is what sets these discussions apart from traditional book clubs and discussions. See the Statewide Program Schedule 2014-2015 for book titles, dates, and times of programs near you! 

To apply for the 2015-2016 program year of Let's Talk About It, submit your library's application, along with letters of support, to ICfL by the deadline of May 15, 2015. Click here to access the application form.
