Every attempt will be made to accommodate your first table choice, but you may be assigned to another table in order to facilitate discussion of all titles.

Each table will have a captain who will take notes from the table discussion and share those thoughts with the whole group. Please feel free to bring other books that you believe may be worthy contenders for any of the medals and there will be some sharing time at the end.
