BPM: When accepting members into the group, what are you looking for in the person?
We are looking for a commitment and passion for reading and helping others. We have an Cyrus probation period before you become a member. Basically a trial period to see if your heart is really in it. We have a Facebook page which is open to the public.
BPM: How do you feel about attending book signings, literary festivals and events?
We love attending book signings, literary festivals, and author meet & greets. We enjoy hearing the authors reading from their books.
BPM: Do you host special events during the year or do you work for any charities?
Yes, we host several events yearly such as an Easter Egg Hunt, Family and Friends Day, Thanksgiving Dinner, and a Christmas Toy Drive. We sometimes do a girls night out or just hang out.
BPM: Do you have any words of wisdom for other readers starting a book club?
Yes, make sure everyone has love and passion for reading and set goals and achieve them. Also set rules for everyone to follow and it should help the club last a long time. We are 5 years and counting and we love it!!
