Book Club Interviews: Archives

Interviews With Book Clubs

In addition to BookBrowse's ongoing book club research projects, from time to time, we inteview individual book groups so as to share their experiences with BookBrowse's wider community of readers.

Each interview has something to inspire whatever your book group interests, such as the books that a group have most enjoyed discussing (and the ones they didn't), ideas that you can borrow to freshen up your own group, or sometimes to provide a complete roadmap for starting a new book club.

If you feel that your book group has something unique to offer, and you would like to tell others about it, please contact us with brief details, and maybe we can feature you in the future.
