Join the Capitol Choices Listservs
Capitol Choices welcomes your participation in our monthly book discussions (see the schedule). If you are unable to meet with us in person, you may join one of our two listserves to stay informed.
This listserv is designed to keep members briefly updated on Capitol Choices discussions. Listserv members receive two emails during the months that Capitol Choices meets (see the schedule). The first lists the titles up for discussion at the meeting. The second, sent approximately a week after each meeting, summarizes the discussion of the nominated books. Subscribers cannot post to this listserv.
To join the broadcast-only listserve, send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the words "subscribe capitolchoices-update your_full_name" in the body of the message. Or click here to join.
This listserve is designed to keep active members updated on nominations and email discussions of nominations as they occur. Listserv members may nominate titles and post comments to this listerv. Traffic is light, ranging from just one or two messages a day, to a dozen or more when the discussion heats up.
