Aside from the book and your friends, asking questions about what you’ve read is, obviously, the key to any good book club. Without the right questions, your conversation remains, at best, shallow, if not downright flat or silent. And since no one wants to sit through a book club discussion that is halting and uninspiring, we have discussion questions available for all of the titles below, plus some general questions that you can use to start a conversation on any book.
Click on any title below to find discussion questions for your next book club. Can't find discussion questions for a book? Email firstname.lastname@example.org, and JBC will try to help!
