I’m interested to know how other people are running book clubs during Covid. Is Zoom the “go to” platform for most? Or is there some other more intimate way to connect with our book people?
In September we had the opportunity to host book club in person for the first time in close to two years. Joy was palpable and we were so excited to see each other in person. Sadly we haven’t been able to meet in person since the arrival of Omnicron (sounds like some interstellar visitation whose sole purpose is to poop on everyone’s parade). Anyway, September’s meeting was the “first” book club of the season, the one where we share book suggestions and vote on the titles for the year and this year we have some wonderfully diverse genres:
Empire of the Wild by Cherie Dimaline
The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hard Castle by Stuart
The Madness of Crowds by Louise Penny
Daughters of Kobani Gale Tzemarch Lemmon
A Ghost in the Throat by Doireann Ni Ghriofa
From the Ashes Jessie Thistle
Dark Archives by Megan Rosenbloom
All’s Well Mona Awad
The Book of Longings Sue Monk Kidd
The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams
What books are you reading together this year?
