Book Club Questions


About 15 years ago, we started our first book club at Cupboard Maker Books.  From the beginning, we wanted to read non-traditional book club choices.  We have always written book club questions to provide structure for the discussion. 

Please feel free to use these questions.  

If you have any questions about these book club questions, you can email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
