The Book Club Around the Corner

The BCATC brings members together to read and discuss a selection of titles that vary in genre (fiction & non-fiction).   The club highly promotes and values Freedom of expression.

 The purpose of this book club is to:

– Cultivate reading as a lifetime healthful habit.

– Expand the members’ personal literary experience by reading quality and diverse works.

– provide an open forum for members to exchange ideas and opinions by having monthly book discussions and networking with other literary organizations.

-On the long term- Sponsor a junior book club.

 Activities: Book Discussions:

Every month we will brainstorm a list of 5 books, and will go with the book that acquired the highest number of votes.  We can also invite the authors to answer members questions, and discuss their writing.

 Story telling events:

Will host professional story tellers and folk tales narrators.  Members may also present their own story telling events if they are willing to.

 On the spot Round-Robin gatherings:

A monthly event, in which the moderator will prepare an undisclosed theme until he/she starts the round.  The round participants then will collaborate to come out with a full story.

 Book Bazar:
