Find Your Park, NWS Book Discussion Group, 2015The National Writers Series launches monthly book group in celebration of the National Park Service 100th Anniversary

The National Park Service (NPS) is celebrating their 100th anniversary. The National Writers Series (NWS) is joining in the celebration by suggesting books and providing discussion guides that encourage book groups to read stories that are connected to the NPS.
We hope that by reading one of these books, your book group members might rediscover a favorite park or discover a new place.

In celebration of their 100th anniversary, the NPS hopes to connect people to parks and help communities protect what is special to them, highlight their history, and retain or rebuild their economic and environmental sustainability. Join in the celebration and encourage your book group to read one (or more) of these great books.
