The idea would be to read a chapter per week, and discuss by Skype or Google Hangouts for an hour each week.

I'm going to suggest we start the week after US Labor Day (i.e. Sept 6-9), since most folks are beginning fall semester
around/by then. For the first meeting, read the intro (Chapt 1), since there's not a lot to cover in that.
At the first meeting, we can introduce ourselves and say what we want to learn and/or get out of the
book club.

If there are a lot of people interested, we can split into multiple groups. My guess is that 4-6 is an
ideal group size. Once there's been time for people to sign up (say, by Aug 25), I'll set up a Doodle poll
to set days/times.

Feel free to add comments here. - Margaret

Update Aug 24: I wrote to Mark Vellend, and he's agreed to join us occassionally to discuss his book! We'll figure out those
details after we get the groups together.

Update Aug 28: Ok, wow, there's a lot of us. I think we'll plan on starting some groups the week of Sept 5 and some others
the week of Sept 19. (Your choice on which to join.) That way people who can't get the book immediately can still particpate
from the beginning of the book. Fill out this poll here to indicate your availability:

Update Sept 9: First book groups are rolling. Let me know if you have any problems. Second round of book groups are
now being organized. If you need a group, please fill out this Doodle poll:

Update Sept 19: Fall book groups are now set. If you're interested in a group starting in 2017, add your name in the
appropriate place on the "Groups" tab (click it at the bottom...)

Have been having nightmares with Skype - more than 2 way conversation has been not working in the UK for a couple of months as far as I can tell. Hangouts or even Whatsapp like 'the kids these days' would be good...
