All participants will need to secure their own copy of the book. Used, borrowed, or electronic versions are all acceptable.

Between reading the book and participating in supplemental activities, participants can expect to spend between 1 and 3 hours a week on class activities. Those who choose to do the final project can expect to spend 4-5 additional hours on that project.

The book club discussion boards and live discussion are extemporaneous and therefore somewhat unpredictable. Facilitators will do their best to ensure positive, supportive interactions.

Families are encouraged to check reviews and content notes for each individual book in the book club to ensure it is a good fit for them.
