Happy Friday, friends!
Today’s episode is a peek behind the scenes at how I select our book club books each year. Whether you are running a book club of your own and looking for suggestions or if you join in monthly to read with me, I want to share with you what I’ve learned over the years about book selection and building meaningful conversations around books.
Haven’t joined the book club yet? Here are the details on the 2021 Book Club together. I’d love to have you!

In this week’s Patreon Bonus Expand the Stack, I’m sharing:
- The newspaper article that reminded me how very human I am being right now
- The books that ended in a fizzle instead of being the potential book club contenders that I thought they were
- The consequences of picking buzz books instead of screening books for you
- Three super solid recommendations for a killer book club discussion if you are tasked with the selecting for your own clubs
