Fall Reading Series (Book Club)

 

Join the Sport & Social Club in our Fall Reading Series!

We're featuring a mix of fiction and non-fiction novels this season. 

Each month we feature a new book and host a virtual meet-up where you'll get together with others reading the same book and work through discussions with your Book Club Host, Karley, over Zoom. 

During the monthly meet-up, we will discuss the book, talk about your opinions and where the author may of been coming from.  You will spend about 40-minutes discussing, and 20-minutes doing an activity related to the book you are reading. 

Each book club meet-up is just $5.00, choose from the list below and register for the sessions that resonate with you.  After all, there is nothing better than a fall spent reading in front of the fire!

Book Club attendees are required to purchase, rent or download the book at their own cost.


All you need is a wi-fi enabled device, access to Zoom and of course, your own space to read.


Everyone welcome!

 

Registration deadline is three days prior to each meet-up!
