Cecilia Garrett Chairs Chattanooga Bar Association’s Book Club for Busy Lawyers
The Hamilton County Herald recently published “CBA Brings Book Club With Tale of Murder in Chattanooga,” which highlights Cecilia Garrett’s role as chair of the Chattanooga Bar Association‘s (CBA) book club. The article discusses how Cecilia’s appreciation for reading influenced her to lead a book club for others who also enjoy this hobby. The club’s first read, “Murder by the River,” tells the story of a Chattanooga nightclub murder that took place in the 1970s.
Here’s a snapshot from the article:
When Chattanooga Bar Association Executive Director Lynda Hood learned about Garrett’s penchant for reading, she asked her to chair a new social endeavor for the CBA: a book club.
Garrett was game. Not only does she like spearheading extracurricular activities, she says, but she also knew facilitating the book club would give her a reason to read for fun again – an activity she’s neglected since she began practicing law.
“It was a chance to do something I used to enjoy,” she smiles.
Launched earlier this year, the CBA’s book club caters to busy attorneys by meeting only once per quarter, giving participants three months to read the book the group has selected. In addition to gathering together to discuss the tome, Garrett and Hood plan optional events than can deepen everyone’s understanding of the selection.
