This month I am one of three people hosting a book discussion in Wendy Knight’s Winged Ones on Facebook. We’re reading Wendy’s Banshee at the Gate which is a fun middle grade book about a hybrid Banshee who is trying to save her brother’s life as well as save Atlantis. This is my third time reading the book and I love It. I am sure I’ll be reading it to Wyatt sometime soon as well.
I have never belonged to a book club, never really discussed books with others in a structured way. In the past I have led Q&A sessions with authors where we ask the author questions about the book and their writing process but never me trying to open up a discussion about the book.
Since our discussion is broken down to just a few chapters every couple of days it is easier for everyone to participate. Today we’re talking about chapters 7 and 8. My first question was about Sevens developing powers and which one the reader thinks might come in as throat useful.
Have you ever been in a book club or discussion group? Do you have any advice for me about what sort of questions might spark more interaction? Are book discussions something you enjoy?
