As part of my Directed Fieldwork for SPL, I attended the November meeting of the Northgate Book Club for a discussion of The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe. Even though I'm Art Director of Bushwick Book Club Seattle, it'd been a long time since I'd sat down for a group discussion. I was more than a little concerned that I wouldn't be able to find anything intelligent to say. However, the book club members were so friendly and intelligent, and Eric (from SPL) such a capable host, that I had no trouble contributing to the conversation. I hope to have an opportunity to attend more book clubs in the future, and more importantly, to host book clubs in the future (I was so inspired by the discussion that I promptly started a small book club with some friends!).
