Sprummer Reading Series (Fiction)

 

Join the Sport & Social Club in our Fiction Spring/Summer Reading Series! 

Looking for Non-Fiction?  Click here.

Choose our Non-Fiction or Fiction Book series.  Each month we feature a new fiction & non-fiction book and host a virtual meet-up where you'll get together with others reading the same book and work through discussions with your Book Club Host, Karley, over Zoom. 

During the monthly meet-up, we will discuss the book, talk about your opinions and where the author may of been coming from.  You will spend about 40-minutes discussing, and 20-minutes doing an activity related to the book you are reading. 

Each book club meet-up is just $5.00, choose from the list below and register for the sessions that resonate with you.  After all, there is nothing better than a summer spent reading on the beach, your patio, or just curling up on the sofa!

Book Club attendees are required to purchase, rent or download the book at their own cost.


All you need is a wi-fi enabled device, access to Zoom and of course, your own space to read.


Everyone welcome!

 

Registration deadline is two weeks prior to each meet-up!
