December Book Discussion Club Meetup - The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

On 13 December 2018, we are having our first two book discussion club meetups, after having finished the novel entitled 'The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society'.

Our meetups will be in Room 32, at our Languages School, first floor, on Thursday 13, at 17:00 and at 19:00 correspondingly, and we will be gathering for over a couple of hours to discuss and debate on the aforesaid book.

How we are going to organise the meetup:

- We will all be bringing the book we have previously read at home.

- We will not be reading aloud, unless somebody really wishes to do so in order to highlight some paragraphs, sentences or chapters that trigger the discussion.

- We will be later (the following week) watching the book-based film and having a social gathering for further debate and comparison.

- We will then have a social online learning challenge entitled 'Tasty books' (up to 20 December 2018).

- We will be appointing at least one coordinator per meetup.

Essentials that you must not forget when you come and take part in the book discussion club meetups:

The ideal line of a book discussion club is the one that mixes learning with the debate, so it is important to broaden the margins of the book by your looking for data about the time in which the action takes place, analyzing the style and structure of the book, finding further information about the author, and so forth.

The coordinators must also do so and must share their knowledge sources with the rest of the readers, passing on the idea that learning new things is very easy: you only have to go and find the information wherever it is.

Before the meetup, the coordinator must have prepared the reading in a thorough manner:

- taking notes of the most remarkable aspects,
- preparing questions to launch during the session; for example:

How have you liked such or such a character?

Are their reactions logical?

Do you remember any other known character?

Does anyone know things that can complete some aspects of the action narrated?

Is what the author tells, credible?

Is the work well understood or complicated?

What literary style has been used?

Looking forward to an enjoyable book discussion club meetup!
