An interview with Ann Hart of Town Center Book Club.

What book are members reading this month? "The All-True Travels and Adventures of Lidie Newton" by Jane Smiley.

Which books have members liked? "The Love of a Good Woman," a collection of short stories by Alice Munro; "Crossing to Safety" by Wallace Stegner.

How often does the club meet? Once a month at Oakland Manor in Columbia, usually the third Friday of the month.

How many belong to the club? About eight.

When was the club formed? It's about 20 years old.

Do you have any advice for other book clubs? "The best discussions take place when there are not too many members in a group. About 10 to a dozen is about the most a group would want to have."
