Book Club in a Bag

A group of friends, a provocative book, and free-flowing discussion…don’t these sound like the ingredients for a wonderful experience? Book Club in a Bag will help you get started.

Each Book Club in a Bag has fifteen copies of the same book so every person in your group can take a book, read it, and be ready for the discussion. Also included in the bag is a list of possible discussion questions, a short biography of the author, and some web sites to view.

There are over 200 titles available. Do you like to read and discuss books that have been made into movies? Winter’s Bone, Life of Pi, and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close are just a few titles that were also movies.

What about riveting non-fiction? Try In Cold Blood, Capote’s combination of serious literature and crime report, or Mississippi Solo, St. Louis native Eddy L. Harris’s travelogue of his one-man journey down our famous river.

Would you like something humorous? Try Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, a collection of essays by witty David Sedaris or Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, Rhoda Janzen’s laugh-out-loud biography.

Do you like historical mysteries? Try Maisie Dobbs. Or do you like humorous mysteries? Try Size 12 is Not Fat.

Do you want to visit or revisit one of the classics? Try Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God or John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath
