We’re changing the way we do Book Club…
Our online Book Club has been running for a few months now and we’ve read some diverse and brilliant plays – and taken part in some vibrant discussion! However, we haven’t had as many of you engaging with as we’d have liked, so recently we took to our Facebook group to ask our members how we could improve things…
We’ve your feedback on board and have come up with a new and improved version of Book Club!
Texts will be announced seasonally
One of the major things you wanted was plenty of time to get your hands on and read the play before the discussion, so we’ll now be announcing the texts in seasonal three monthly blocks.
How does it work?
We’ll post a reminder of the chosen play at the start of each month.
Many of you found it tricky to join in the discussion when it was scheduled for a specific time, so instead, from the 15th of each month, discussion will open on our Facebook Group and stay open. You can dip in and out throughout the rest of the month as much or as little as you like, whenever is convenient for you.
All you need to do is read the play and come on over to our Members Facebook Group to join the discussion! Book club threads will be marked with the hashtag #bookclub, so it will be easy to find the discussion.
(Please note, to avoid spoilers for those who haven’t finished the play yet, any comments posted on our Facebook Group prior to 15th of each month will be deleted).
When does it start?
The next Book Club starts on 1 July 2018, where we’ll send out a reminder to read the text. The discussion will then open on our Facebook Group from 15 July 2018.
What plays will we be reading this summer?
July: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (William Shakespeare)
August: A Raisin In The Sun (Lorraine Hansberry)
September: Look Back in Anger (John Osborne)
