RequirementsWillingness to read a book or some short stories each month
ObjectivesTo enhance the attendees enjoyment of reading.
Teaching ProcessSessions will be 1 hour long. The discussion will open with a round table where everyone gives brief comments on their experience with the reading. After that a facilitated discussion will take place with questions to prompt new avenues of discovery. Often book clubs get off the book a bit with related discussions and this is fine. The discussion will be steered back to the book eventually.
UPEI Parking Pass Required?No
Additional Costs or InformationPlease note—book club meetings are usually held monthly to allow people time to read the books. It may be necessary to have fewer sessions to accommodate this for each semester. We can create a shorter list if necessary.
