Book Group Discussions
A number of conversations about The Things They Carried and other related books will take place during Big Read KC at various library locations or other community sites.
FYI Book Group: Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried
A periodic feature in the Kansas City Star, the FYI Book Group is a partnership project between the newspaper and the Kansas City Public Library that spotlights timely "books of the moment" and brings readers together to talk about them. For the Big Read KC, several special FYI Book Group sessions will be held throughout the metro area.
Please note that FYI Book Group conversations are incorporated in subsequent stories in the Kansas City Star. Participants must agree to have their contributions recorded and potentially included in the Star article.
