The art of reading is generally considered to be a solo one, one person and one book. But the convivial spirits of the literary world have expanded that to book clubs and groups, and further on to the festivities of the One City, One Book program. And they?re all thriving in La Cañada Flintridge. Book clubs have been a social phenomenon for many years, and have even been parodied in TV comedies. The impulse to talk to other people about the books you read seems to be a universal one, from childhood on; and publishers and bookstores have used the clubs to create excitement about some of the literary treasures which come along season after season.
