TIFA Virtual Book Club

Love reading? Join the club!

Enjoy the company of fellow readers by becoming a part of TIFA’s Official Book Club. We’re thrilled to announce the return of two virtual seasons in 2024, featuring thoughtfully curated reading lists and engaging conversations. The Winter and Fall seasons each include five meeting sessions that spotlight a specific contemporary book that delivers compelling storytelling and thought-provoking themes. Sessions are facilitated by author and award-winning educator Catherine Graham, and many will include guest appearances by the authors themselves.

Each season of Book Club is capped at 30 registrants, to provide an accessible and intimate environment where all readers have the opportunity to participate meaningfully. Reserve your spot early to avoid disappointment!

Meeting sessions take place at 6pm ET on Wednesdays via Zoom video conferencing
