Dear Book Club Members,
This year has flown by, and the holiday season is in full swing. At RJ Julia we are excited to celebrate this wonderful season with you; our Holiday Catalog books are online for your perusal, and our gift section is full of great selections to round out your holiday gift buying!
Our last meeting of book club leaders and representatives, on October 25th, was a small gathering that generated a lively discussion. We have added two private book clubs and welcomed their leaders and members. Interest in joining our in-store groups has also increased. We loved hearing how one group picks their novels, like Lilac Girls, in order to arrange an opportunity for field trips. Sounds like fun!
At the meeting we offered each book club the opportunity to submit a “shelf talker” for your monthly selections. We will write these up, once submitted, and include them with other shelf talkers around the store. Please remember that your evaluation must fit on a 3 ½ x 2 ½ inch card. We look forward to hearing from you at firstname.lastname@example.org .
There was also a suggestion made to hold a discussion night for parents, to acquaint themselves with the latest, most popular Young Adult books. Our Young Adult team thinks this is a great idea, and has taken it under advisement.
At our Winter meeting on January 16th, we will discuss 2018 favorites, review Shelf Talker submissions and rules, and have an open forum. Hope to see you all there!
