I am so excited to start this book club with you all!
Before we dive in, there are a few things I'd like to discuss.
The WAITF Book Club is a safe space not only to discuss literature, but anything else as it comes up.
Please remember to be respectful of all participants at all times, and don't be afraid to share your thoughts on any books and/or how they relate to you personally.
Please answer these questions so we can choose a date for our meet & greet!
What is your name and what are your pronouns?
List your top three book genres. (If you have any book suggestions please list them as well and we will discuss them with the group during the meet & greet. All genres are welcome!)
Hi, so I changed the date because weekends may work best for everyone. How would you all feel about Saturday the 23rd? Sometime between 2:00pm and 4:00pm EST? (We have people joining us from all over the US and London! Ah =) ! I want to be accommodating for everyone. Let me know what you all think. This is just for the first meet & greet.)
If January 23rd works, would 3:00pm EST work for you? If not, everyone give the best Saturday and times (12:00pm - 3:00pm EST) over the next 2-3 weeks and we will go from there.
In some book clubs, the responsibility shifts by month to come up with questions for the specific section that was read. Would you be open to this option? (This does not necessarily mean you have to lead the group. It just gives everyone a chance to participate and also doesn't put all of the responsibility on me to come up with questions every month... just being honest =) lol. We're all in this together.)
Once everyone choses a date, I will send a calendar invite via email with the zoom link for our meet & greet. We will vote on our first genre and book at that time based on the feedback given in the above questions.
All correspondence amongst members should happen on the WAITF platform to keep things simple. So please, if you have not already, create a profile, upload a photo, and write a little bio about yourself so people will know who is speaking and/or asking a question.
I am so so so so excited to get started! Thank you all for expressing interest and I can't wait to meet and connect with you all! Everyone should feel free to comment on responses they like, especially if the person has book interests in common.
P.S. - This is a chill book club
With that being said, wear whatever, drink whatever, bring your cannabis, etc. We are here to connect on a soul level, to open our minds, be present, and dive into stories that take us away! <3
