Wednesday Feature Book Club: The Pillars
Yup! I am so excited. I am able to bring this feature back as I had a couple more people come forward who wanted to share about their Book Clubs. Thank you! Thank you! I love hearing about all the different clubs out there and how they do their book meetings!
This morning I introduce to you Sondra and her book club The Pillars!
Hi Sondra! I am super excited to have you at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books today! Is there a link that will take us to your book club?
Sondra: Yes, you can find us at: www.myspace.com/thepillars08
I love the layout of that page! I wish I could do something like that for our book club. How long has your group been meeting?
Sondra: Since November 2008
How often do you meet?
Quarterly? Now I am really interested to know about that! When you do meet, do you have someone who leads the discussion?
Where do you meet?
Ok! There it is. I am joining your group! How fun! Now I understand why you meet quarterly! A whole event around the book. That sounds so amazing! How many of you are in this book group?
What is the age group represented in your book club?
Do you have a funny or “book club meeting gone bad” story to share?
Sondra, What advice would you give to other book clubs?
Sondra: Have fun and be open to all genres!
Sondra, thank you so much for sharing about your amazing book club today! I appreciate you opening this group up to us to read about! Yo sound like a wonderful group and I bet you have traveled to some amazing places!
*** Readers – the first Picture of The Pillars was taken at a cabin in Burnett, TX, where they held their initial book discussion. They spent the weekend getting to know each other. They planned activities around the book selection of the quarter and discussed the future of the book club.
The second picture was taken at their meeting in New Orleans, LA during their book discussion weekend for “Cane River“. They visited all the sites listed in the book that we could find starting in Natchitoches, LA, home of the Cane River Plantation, down to New Orleans, LA..
If you are part of a book club (on line or off) I would love to chat with you and feature you in this Wednesday spot. If you are interested, please email me at journey through books @ gmail.com
