A Chapter with the Chapters
We are pleased to announce the launch of the Greater Atlanta ATD Virtual Book Club!
Please join Greater Atlanta ATD for A Chapter with the Chapters where every session is led by the author of the book.
Each month a member-selected book will be read and discussed online every one month. Books will be selected based on the interests of the members and a vote between several options every period. Some will be bestsellers and highlight industry trailblazers. Some will be less famous works the executive board thinks you will love. Each will be discussed in an hour interactive session led by the book’s author. You are responsible for getting a copy of the book to read or listen to but we will provide a chapter, upon registration, for the live discussion.
This amazing opportunity is a must-attend for anyone who has ever thought, "this book is fantastic, and I want to chat with the author" and now wants to make it happen.

The group will be completely online so people who normally couldn't make an in-person meeting can participate. Each live session will be held on Zoom. Discussions will continue in the Greater Atlanta SLACK Channel at the end of each reading period. The moderators of the group will also post relevant articles and other content regularly as well to help facilitate discussion.
The time commitment for the group will depend on how fast you read and how much you choose to participate. This allows a lot of flexibility which we hope will be appropriate for people's busy lives.
Zoom meeting link and access to chapter will be provided upon registration.
