Kona Stories Book Clubs

Kona Stories' Fiction and Non-Fiction book clubs sound like fantastic opportunities for book enthusiasts to come together, discuss interesting reads, and enjoy the company of like-minded individuals. Here's a summary of the key details and benefits:

  1. Meeting Schedule: The book clubs at Kona Stories meet on Tuesdays at 6 PM. Fiction book club meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, and Non-Fiction book club meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month.

  2. Open to Everyone: These book clubs are open to anyone interested, and you don't have to commit to attending every month. Some participants come regularly, while others join when the book being discussed piques their interest.

  3. Book Selection: The facilitator of the group plans ahead by selecting books two months in advance. This allows members to purchase and read the selected book well before the book club meeting. Book selection is a collaborative process, with the group voting on book suggestions brought forward by the facilitator.

  4. Snacks and Beverages: Participants are encouraged to bring snacks and beverages to share with the group. Wine is even allowed for those who enjoy a glass while discussing books.

  5. Cost: If you purchase the book for the book club at Kona Stories, the book club meetings are free. However, if you obtain your books through e-readers or other means, there is a $5.00 contribution to the calabash.

In summary, Kona Stories' book clubs offer a welcoming environment for readers to explore a variety of literary works, engage in thoughtful discussions, and make new friends. With a focus on planning ahead, collaborative book selection, and the flexibility to attend as your schedule allows, these book clubs provide a great opportunity to connect with fellow book enthusiasts in the Kona community.
