- The Fam
This weekend is our official first meeting of the Brontë Sister’s Book Club. We are still accepting participants! Even if you don’t want to read with us…just come and giggle. We are going to meet at my mother-in-law’s home in Logan, Utah. If your interested…let me know! You can also join us online.
I have never been apart of a book club before and so I have done some research to make it all official and such. Let me share…
First, it is important to establish what the intention of the book club is, whether for exploring new books, having intellectual conversations, finding friends, etc. Personally, I decided to form this group because I want to share my love of literature with family and friends. I want to give them a reason to read the Bronte Sisters…it’s important to me.
Next, we should discuss what are expectations for the book club are. For example, some people think that once you joined a book club you have made a blood-pact type commitment. These people frown upon missing meetings and feel that the discussion must be taken seriously. There are also people that join book clubs for an excuse to chat with their friends and do not feel it a big deal to miss a meeting or to not read the book. I’m sure that if these two types of people join the same book club both would be pretty put off by each other. *It turns out that our club is more for the laid-back type.
We should also go over the books we will be covering and our timeline. I have already outlined the books and months because it’s a themed book club…pretty straight forward. It is something we should still discuss in the case someone disagrees with a book choice. *Timeline is outlined on the Book Club page.
We should also briefly discuss how we want our book club to run during each meeting and how we should prepare for each meeting beforehand. *We want to watch the corresponding movie if possible and plan to meet in different places. We will decide on an exact date to meet as the time approaches, in order to be flexible. Prep for each meeting should include tabing any passages you want to discuss. I’ll bring the discussion guide as a back up.
This week we are going to discuss what we know about the Brontë sisters and I’ll prepare an introduction. Also, I want to watch Jane Austen Book Club …just because it was the inspiration for this shin-dig. *We decided that we didn’t have the desire nor the time to watch the movie :)
Another thing…should we have food? Snacks? I mean…we can’t NOT have food, right?
I’ll have to update this post after the meeting. I’m hoping to make a separate page on the blog to check-in with. So look out for that! *Done and done.
