RGC Attends Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville, VA!


VA Festival of the Book  

Reading Group Choices attended the Virginia Festival of the Book on March 24th. I, Laura Vianna, was a panel member for the Book Club workshop. I was able to inform the audience of a few tips that Reading Group Choices has gathered over the years from book clubs. A few included:

 

-Book Club Awards
-Book Group Website
-Charity Involvement
-Food by the Book
-Author Chats
-Field Trips
-Diversify group membership

At the end of the workshop, the audience was able to share what their book clubs do for fun as well as ask the panel questions and seek advice.

Reading Group Choices also gave away five boxes of books to five lucky winners for their book clubs. Maybe we will be at an event near you!
