Book Discussion Scheme are proud to be partnering with WORD Christchurch to bring you the inaugural WORD Book Club — a chance for you and your mates to extend and enrich your WORD Festival experience by combining a six-month mini book club with livestream author sessions from the festival. Your book club will read your choice of five titles by WORD Christchurch 2022 authors, and receive livestream tickets to their sessions during the festival. You'll also receive incredible value, with prices exclusive to WORD Book Club 2022 participants. Plus, BDS dispatch to book clubs NZ-wide — so groups can sign up from anywhere in the country! WORD 2022 Book Clubs will meet once a month for six months. We’ll send your group five books written by WORD 2022 authors, one every month from the time you register. You’ll also receive tickets to those same five authors’ livestreams, allowing you to extend and enrich your festival experience. Why not hold a watch party for your first livestream? — it's the perfect opportunity to hold your first book club meeting and hand out your first book! You can register to participate in the WORD 2022 Book Club anytime between now and the start of the festival on 31 August. Full details and how to register can be found on the BDS website: https://bds.org.nz/news?view=article&id=194&catid=13
