For the most part our book clubs are self-directed. We want everyone to talk about the things that interested them! We do have some basic questions that we use at each book club to get the ball rolling:
General poll – thumbs up or down, did you like the book?
What was your favorite part? Why?
What was your least favorite part? Why?
Who was your favorite character? Why?
Who was your least favorite character? Why?
What would you have written differently? Why?
Participants don’t have to talk if they don’t want to. We have children who come to several meetings without saying anything. You may be asked if you want to add something to the conversation, but “no” is a perfectly acceptable answer!
