Events & Activities :: Club Activities :: Book Club - Chapter Three
Chapter 3 meets at the homes of members in the afternoon of the 4th Wednesday of the month.
At our Christmas potluck meeting in late November, each member suggests a book. We schedule them to try and vary the topics, style, and intensity. We choose older books that are available through the library and try to avoid the obvious best sellers that people have already read. Titles for 2017 include:
January 25 White Oleander by Janet Fitch
February 22 The Secret in their Eyes by Eduardo Sacheri
March 22 The Master by Colm Toibin
April 26 The Girl in the Red Coat by Roma Ligocka
May 24 Three Day Road by Joseph Boyden
June 28 Dead Politician Society by Robin Spano
July 26 The Widow by Fiona Barton
Unlike many book clubs we don't have a formal review of the book. We send out an e-mail before the meeting with a few possible discussion options . So far we have never had a meeting without a lively conversation.
We meet all year (excluding December) and have an annual excursion to a play at Stratford.
To keep members who can't attend a meeting included, each month we share our rating of the book, major topics discussed and our current reading favourites through an e-mail afterwards.
Book Club 3 welcomes new members – particularly those who remain in town during the winter. Contact me if you're interested.
