KWC launches a lockdown bookclub
21/5/2020 saw the launch of our online bookclub with a twist. Normally a bookclub involves picking a book, reading it and discussing it, simple? Not so simple in lockdown as some of the club members are shielding and therefore cannot go outside to the shops to purchase a book or perhaps some do not have access to purchasing items on line.
We felt the best way to deliver our bookclub was for a member of staff to read the book to the Members and share it through What's App. Everyday a 10 minute extract of the book is shared and the response so far has been fantastic. Some club members have said this has encouraged them to purchase a kindle and explore audio books and some have said they are just happy popping the kettle on, having a cuppa and being read to. One other member comment she could related to the main character as she had an aunt just like her and another said she is loving listening to how the characters are unfolding. The book we are currently reading is called Old Baggage by Lissa Evans.
