At your first meeting talk about how to run your Book Club
- where you will meet, what time you will meet and how long a meeting will go for (we recommend 30-60 minutes)
- which book you will read
The leader needs to make sure that enough time is given to each member and noone is left out of the conversation. The leader can use these bookmarks to help with this.
Using the first book list for each age group we have gathered some ideas you might like to add to your next meeting.
