Have you picked up your copy of Medicine Walk by Richard Wagamese? This installment of the BCTELA book club series (#bctelabook) is the first work of fiction we’ve read. It’s also the first time we’ve cast the invitation to participate beyond our membership.
We are excited to see who all joins us for the main discussion on Twitter.
Sunday, March 8th has been selected for the Twitter chat for our book club chat. As usual, we will be using the hashtag #bctelabook. We will all meet online at 11am and chat until 12noon.
If this is your first Twitter chat experience and would like some information beforehand, there are a number of tutorials on youtube, or you can contact us for some support.
Medicine Walk is rich with imagery and topics that will generate thoughtful discussion. Sometimes a Twitter chat is not a forum that encourages deep and thoughtful consideration, at least not in real-time. In order to honour Wagamese’s work, as well as those of us who are verbal and/or aural processors, members of the BCTELA executive will be hosting an in-person book discussion from 9:30-11:00 on March 8th, directly preceding the Twitter chat. If you’d like to join us for a face-to-face chat about Medicine Walk we will meet at a coffee shop near the intersection at Main & Broadway in Vancouver. (Specific location tba)
We hope that some of you around the province might consider hosting a similar gathering, either before or after the Twitter chat on Sunday March 8th. If you want to meet other book clubbers at a spot in your community, let us know and we will help get the word out. (Use the contact us page or tweet us @BCTELA)
