How often will books be read, what is the time commitment and what are the expectations?
The book club will read one book every two months. The texts selected will be lifelong learning, personal growth, novels and other topics and take an average of nine hours to read cover to cover. If you have between 1 and 2 hours a week to read you should be fine.
Will there be any in-person meetings of the book club?
The book club will be entirely online. You can participate anywhere you have internet access and on days and times that are convenient to you.
Is there any cost to participate?
Participation is free for all alumni, current students and staff!
How do I get the books?
Participants can get books for free at their local library or purchase them.
How do book club discussions work?
The book club will have a moderator from our partner PBC Guru, who manages the online discussion forum. The moderator will pose questions to the book club, share relevant articles and facilitate conversation about topics in the book. Members will be encouraged to post and share as well. This allows for ongoing conversation and makes it easy for readers to connect with each other through the forum.
