A few years ago, my son started a book club with some of his elementary school friends. Each month, they’d pick a book to read, then they’d decide on snacks, questions, and activities for the meeting. It was a lot of work figuring out what would best go with each book–and also entertain eight 10- and 11-year-olds, but that’s a whole other thing 😉. Completely by chance, we discovered that some authors had these magical things on their websites called book club kits. At the very least, they included discussion questions. But if we were lucky, they included activities or quizzes or menus or even decorations to print out.Because I know what a wonderful resource book club kits are, I’ve been intending to make one for Your Life Has Been Delayed forever! Basically, it’s been on my to-do list since the book released, and now that it’s been out for six months, I finally got around to it.
I hope someone out there who’s reading my book will be just as delighted to find this kit as I was when helping my son with his book club. It includes:
- What’s inside the book graphic
- Answers to frequently asked questions
- Snack & drink suggestions
- A playlist
- Discussion questions (not spoiler-free so fair warning!)
- A quiz on what was around when Jenny left in 1995
- What to read next after YLHBD
- What to watch after reading YLHBD
- About the author (me)
If you decide to hold a book club using the kit, please let me know! I’d love to send a set of bookmarks and/or signed bookplates for your book club. The same goes if you use it in a classroom. Click on the photo to view/download the kit or click here: YLHBD Book Club Kit
Also, if you have ideas for other things you’d like me to add to the kit, I’d be happy to consider it!
In case you don’t follow me on other platforms, to celebrate Your Life Has Been Delayed‘s half-birthday, I’m giving away signed copies–along with a bookmark and two stickers–on both Instagram and Twitter. These giveaways are open through 11 p.m. central time on Wednesday, March 9.
