July 2020 Spotlight: Virtual Beach Book Club
Our July Spotlight is a “wine group with a book problem” from Florida!
We formed a book club in Pensacola Beach, Florida, that moved to virtual meetings during the time of confinement. We had canceled our March meeting due to the virus, but since then we meet each month, because my group of lovely ladies was missing each other. I suggested a virtual book club meeting to discuss our book (Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty) as well as share a glass (or two or three) of wine. I often say my “wine club has a book problem,” so you can be the judge on the priority.
It was a huge success! Although not all members felt comfortable with the technology (we’re working to solve that for future meetings), everyone else joined in and had a fun time. I was even able to create a custom background with a wall full of books behind me using Canva.
To enter to become a Spotlight group, email a picture and description of your group to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your group is chosen, we will send you and your group a box of discussable books and a copy of our most recent edition of Reading Group Choices!
