What is a Book Club?

A Book Club is a group of people who read a book together and meet to discuss it. Reading a book can sometimes feel like a solitary activity. Books take you on a journey. It makes sense to want to share that journey with someone else.

 

Traditionally Book Clubs read one book a month and meet in person for the discussion. But today, Book Clubs have modernized and adapted to match readers evolving interests and needs. A Book Club can be just you and your best friend reading a steamy romance novel for the summer. Or a Book Club can also be a group of strangers from across the country who are passionate about a book genre (e.g., social activism, fantasy, BIPOC authors, etc.) that regularly meet over Zoom. A Book Club can also be a group of coworkers who want to read diverse stories and discuss them in their office’s conference room.

How do I start a Book Club?

  • Step 1: Find a buddy (your friend, coworker, Abuela, etc.)

  • Step 2: Pick a book you want to enjoy together

  • Step 3: Decide on a length of time to read the book (e.g., a month, two weeks, a year, etc.)

  • Step 4: Acquire the book you decide to read

  • Step 5: Decide if you want to discuss the book in-person, virtually, or a combination of both.

  • Step 6: Pick a tentative date for the book discussion.

    • It is important to be flexible. People might not be able to join, and sometimes your group will not finish the book. The structure is important, but so is creating a space where people do not feel pressured. It’s all about having fun!

  • Step 7: Have some discussion questions prepared for the meeting to guide the conversation.

  • Step 8: Host and enjoy the book discussion
