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 2016-2017   for book titles, dates, and times of programs near you! 

To apply for the 2017-2018 program year of Let's Talk About It, submit your library's application, along with letters of support, to ICfL by the deadline of June 2, 2017. Click here to access the application form.
