While most local book clubs or reading groups have focused on fiction, the new hot movement is Cookbook Clubs. Members pick a cookbook each month, spend the next few weeks test-driving the recipes, and then come together for a potluck and discussion.
If you write or publish cookbooks, ask your local booksellers if they
are hosting any cookbook clubs. Or, better yet, start to promote cookbook clubs where your book or books are the first to be featured.
