How to start a SoFA Book Club!

SoFA Members, want to start a book club on a topic!

Follow some combination of the follow steps!

  1. Create a “New Topic” in the Book Club forum with a clear title of the book (or other reading content)

  2. Make sure the topic post includes some clear guidelines around how conversation about the book will happen. Questions to help you decide what to write might be:
    a. Will you meet or talk online only? How will meetings be scheduled?
    b. What is the reading schedule?
    c. Will someone facilitate? What structure will be used for discussion?

  3. Consider announcing the book club in the SoFA Members Bulletin (SoMBu) by emailing

And enjoy the discussion!
