Book Clubs

I have never truly been in a book club. Not because I don’t want to, but because the opportunity simply hasn’t presented itself. And I really want to be in a book club! I teach literature, and I love it, but sometimes I want to discuss books with grown ups. I love blogging about reading and books here, but the immediate interaction of a discussion is missing. I also enjoyed discussing professional development reading on a forum, but the conversation was sometimes stilted due to the course requirements. I would love to talk about books with a group of people who chose a book to read for pleasure instead of a course requirement.

Any suggestions on getting started?

  1. Hi,

    The Eleanor London Cote St. Luc Public Library, one of the large English libraries in Montreal, provides material and support for book clubs. This includes kits, each comprising eight soft-covered books, a host of reviews, author info and discussion questions, all in a bag you can check out for six weeks. It also offers advice on starting your own club and even a room to hold weekly meetings. Of course, it is not the only library willing and able to support clubs. It is always worth checking with your local library. That said, I have spoken to the Director and she is willing to help you in any way she can. You may e-mail her at tabramovitch@cotestluc.org. Good luck.
