Do Sask Book Club just got better thanks to McNally Robinson Booksellers

Now that it’s July, we’re officially more than halfway through 2018. It’s about time to shed some light on the Do Sask Book Club that began casually back in January and how it’s about to get better thanks to McNally Robinson Booksellers.

You probably noticed while perusing Do Sask over the past 18 months that organizing group experiences is my thing. From brewery tours to speed dating, craft workshops to road trips – creating new activities close to home is part of what gives my life meaning. 

WHY RUN A FREE BOOK CLUB?

The Do Sask Book Club began as an in-person meetup for closed Facebook group members. I only knew one other member in person before the book club met up in January this year.

Finding a group of friends who are willing to commit to monthly gatherings isn’t easy. Take my Sunday-night all-women D&D experiment group. We found out that having a 3-hour-plus game late into the evening on a work night wasn’t going to fly long-term. (Yes, I play D&D. Did I mention I’m a dork?)

However if a bunch of friends commit as a group to finishing something they start, they can definitely do some big things in the world. That’s what community means to me. And that’s why I started the Book Club.

Over the past 6 months, we’ve read five different titles and held meetings at a number of local venues. Books include Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King,  1984 by George Orwell, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari, and Artemis by Andy Weir. There was a clear theme that ran through these discussions, but it wasn’t planned as books are chosen by random draw.

HOW THE DO SASK BOOK CLUB WORKS

  • Book Draw Everyone in attendance puts their #1 title into a draw.
  • Eclectic Topics Each title will eventually be picked, so you’re guaranteed to have your book chosen along with a variety of other options – some you may hate and others may surprise you.
  • Flexible Meetings Dates are chosen on a day that works for the majority of attendees, usually a Monday or Tuesday evening.
  • Drinks & Discussion Book club members get together for a casual conversation over lattes and cocktails.
  • Book Club is always FREE Please bring cash if you’d like to order a drink and snacks to support the host venue.

If your schedule is anything like mine, you may not have time to include leisure reading every month. That’s why we don’t enforce the rule of finishing the book (although it makes a difference for the discussion). So you never have to feel pressure and can show up if you want to take part, or just listen.

What I’ve loved most about the Do Sask Book Club is learning how different people pick up unique aspects of each book. No one thinks alike and everyone offers a new perspective, or pieces of the story that I may have missed.

DO SASK BOOK CLUB & MCNALLY ROBINSON BOOKSELLERS

Meet us at Prairie Ink Restaurant inside McNally Robinson Booksellers starting later this summer. Along with providing space for discussions, McNally is offering Do Sask Book Club members their Reader Reward card for $10 which gives you 10% off your purchases. There will be a draw for a gift card at every meeting, if you needed some added incentive.

In the future, the curators at McNally Robinson Booksellers are willing to line up authors to potentially speak and offer book suggestions when applicable.

COME TO THE NEXT BOOK CLUB MEETING

At the July Do Sask Book Club, we’ll discuss “The Merry Wives of Windsor” before watching the play at Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan. Check out the event listing for details. 

The year is young! Fill it with new friends, a few drinks, and some literature at the Do Sask Book Club. Please contact me if you’d like more information about upcoming meetings.

3 REASONS NOT TO MISS THE 2ND AVE SIDEWALK SALE 2018

Chill with the besties and meetup with the ones you least expected to see

With a little something for everyone, you never know who you’ll run into at this massive outdoor market. That’s probably the best reason to go – you’ll have a great excuse to catch up with friends you haven’t seen in a while!

FREE workouts every morning with your squad

Wake up bright and early to workout with your tribe before shopping begins! Don’t miss the special Lululemon daily workout #thesweatlifeyxe from 7 to 8 a.m.

Be the first to experience Downtown’s newest patio

Take a lunch break, or stop for a pint. Get a seat on the O’Shea’s Irish Pub back-alley pilot patio. Some of the best local restaurants in DTNYXE will be open, too.
