New to Book Club Hacks? This is where I share Secrets and Shortcuts I’ve stolen (with permission, of course!) from my favorite Book Clubs from across the country (and those I’ve met through my Tall Poppy Sisters, as well).

This week I share a Book Club Hack I learned from my own Book Club many years ago: Field Trips!

February is a tricky month to plan a Book Club. There are Valentine’s Day class parties to plan, and (depending on where you live!) plenty of snow days to recover from. The weather is iffy, the temperatures are LOW, and everyone is bloated from too much sugar.

This is the perfect time to mix things up and meet your Book Club at the theatre to take in the latest blockbuster. (Based on a Book of course!)

In 2018, some of my FAVORITE BOOKS EVER will show up on the big screen. A Wrinkle in Time, Where’d You Go Bernadette?, and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society just to name a few.


It’s the perfect time for a field trip! What’s on your Must See/Must Read list for the tail end of winter?
