Concentric Reading Circle - Retired
We have retired the Concentric Reading Circle.
You can review previous books below. The "CRC Book Club Discussion" forum (available to Gold Star members only) remains open though if you would like to comment on a previous book. Please use the existing topic for each book to make your comments.
