Seeking Participants for Suite Scarlett / Scarlett Fever Roundtable

If you're digging this month's books, Suite Scarlett and Scarlett Fever by Maureen Johnson, we'd love for you to participate in an online roundtable discussion.

It's really easy to do. Just leave a comment below with your email address. Next week, I will send you an invite through Google Docs, where you may respond to some basic discussion questions to get things started. Then add in questions of your own, and check the document every couple of days throughout the month to respond to questions and comments from other readers. Google Docs is available 24/7, so you may keep adding to the discussion any time an idea strikes you until we wrap things up in late September. I'll post the complete roundtable at both the Bildungsroman and readergirlz blogs at the close of the month.

Check out previous roundtables to see how they work.

Check out the September issue of readergirlz for more about the books and their author.

I haven't read these books in several months and don't remember them that well, but I'd like to at least attempt (meaning read the discussion and input where I remember enough to be useful), so if that's okay, here's my email: jalawood@gmail.com

Hey there, elfarmy17! I'll send you an invite when the roundtable is ready. I hope you get a chance to re-read the books so you can dive right into the discussion!
