Remote book clubs present a unique challenge because you will not be present in the room to offer support as needed. The following handouts are designed to provide some of this support so that groups can facilitate their remote book club discussions autonomously. Handouts are available as shareable Google Docs/Slides and as PDFs. Keep it fun and engaging by using these handouts judiciously.
