    Hello everyone! I am excited to introduce Page Turners, the NCSLMA Grown-Up Book Club!

    This idea grew from Brew Crew (if you're not attending Brew Crews, you really should - we talk about a LOT of stuff). We brainstormed and thought this format could work best for our members.  I want to send out a huge Thank You to Robyn Stone for agreeing to help run the Book Club!

    This a crowd-sourced book club. We will meet monthly on the 3rd Saturday of each month at 9:30am with a new book at each meeting. The book titles will be submitted and voted on by people who sign up. Majority rules. :-)

    The meeting schedule will be as follows:

    • January 21 - Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus

    • February 18 - Mad Honey by Jodi Piccoult

    • March 18 - The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles

    • April 15

    • May 20

    • June 17

    • July 15

    • August 19

    • September 16

    • October - Meet at conference

    • November 18

    • December 16


    Some goals we have include asking the author of the book that month to pop in for a cameo. We will create a private space so we can discuss the club and the books, especially for those who can't make a meeting here and there. Because we have so many people signed up (what an awesome problem to have!), we will meet for a few minutes as a group, then adjourn to breakout rooms to discuss on a smaller scale. The agenda and study guide will be shared with everyone a couple of days before the meeting so everyone is on the same page (hahahahahaha). 


    We thank you for your patience as we build this book club. :-)


    If you're still reading and you're interested, please register! 

    The link for our Google Meet will be in your confirmation e-mail. 

    Please visit the Page Turners webpage at ncslma.org/pageturners for information and for the discussion forum.
