Do You Love the Idea of 

Book Clubs

But don't like the pressure to read and host?  

We all love learning, growing, and developing effective life skills but lack the bandwidth to set up, host, and run a Book Club. I HAVE THE SOLUTION FOR YOU! Let me do the heavy lifting- and reading! Be one of the organizations, associations, or communities that utilize my ability to speed read, mind-map, summarize and host lively book clubs.

 

These Book Clubs are my fun and unconventional approach to "reading" as a community. Your members, associates, and community will love the opportunity and excitement surrounding the Live Life Happy Book Clubs!

The Unconventional

BOOK CLUB

 

Many non-fiction books have a wealth of knowledge, support, and potential to enhance our lives, but so many remain unread and unacted upon wisdom. Here is where my Unconventional approach to a Book Club comes in! I turned my obsession for books, my ability to grasp key takeaways and speed reading into a superpower that you can benefit from! 

 

What I do is:

  •  Host a Book Club monthly-L.I.V.E (Live Interactive Virtual Event) Zoom!

  • Read and present a new book every month nominated by the members or handpicked by the organization.

  • Provide an overview, a highlight of key concepts and discussion of learning opportunities

  • Create a pdf mind-map for presenting and for a takeaway handout

  • Open up a lively discussion with appreciative inquiry questions to encourage positive change (break-out sessions with larger groups) 

  • Spend 60 minutes every month helping participants turn knowledge into action!

  • Provide a prepared summary for those who didn't read and wanted to show up to learn.

  • Create a fun, learning, life-enhancing opportunity to connect like-minded people!

 

Book Club Introduction: 

We're starting a NEW Book Club. 

Would you like to join?

 

Here's what it will look like:

Each month, starting _________ we'll announce the book of the month.

We'll spend the month reading it- As you read, we kindly ask that you capture:  

 

  1. An overview- a short description of the book that provides general information-a general summary 

  2. Key take-ways-main points or key messages taught, learned or understood

  3. The eureka effect- (also known as the Aha! moment)-your discovery, inspiration, or insight while reading.

 

Have this information ready to share with the group. Host Andrea Seydel will create a mindmap with key insights, take-ways, and a-ha's. Of course, we will have a lively discussion, break-out groups and opportunities to put the knowledge into action right away. The best part is, if you miss one of the Book Clubs or didn't have the chance to read, you will still get an excellent summary of the empowering book! We'll meet virtually (via Zoom) to chat about the book at the end of the month!

 

Each month, we will:

  • Read a great book to inspire and build us up.

  • Meet with a group of like-minded individuals.

  • Be encouraged, challenged, and inspired.

  • Have new ideas and action steps to move forward.

  • Have fun with the CPPA community!

 

You'll love our incredible book line-up!
