I lead a Book and Movie Club that meets once a month. In this post, I am sharing the selections for 2017 and 2018. I create some fairly extensive reading guides, quotes, and book club questions. Anyone who is interested can join free. If you will send me your email address, I’ll email you the notes for each book-movie selection, and you can participate here and through my youtube channel.

During 2017, the group read some lengthy and very adult books, but during the latter part of 2017 and during part of 2018, we’ll be reading some books that were written for little people but that have great big heart.
