I am super excited about Adam Schiff joining us in the book club zoom tomorrow night!
I nearly wrote “please read all the information” but I thought that would be too close to “please clap”.
First: Adam Schiff will be joining us for our book club meeting at 8pm Eastern on Wednesday 1/19, for 30 minutes.
Second: Theme for this meeting is The Insurrection on Jan 6 – The Revolution Really Was Televised!
Third: We have permission to record the 30 minutes with Adam Schiff.
Fourth: 25 people signed up for the book club but haven’t indicated whether they want to participate by zoom or by BJ thread. You know who you are! :- ) Until I receive email from you, I cannot send a zoom link.
Fifth: I am looking for 5 volunteers who would like to be on the zoom but who have not read the book – IF you are willing to live blog the Adam Schiff questions and answers in the Bj thread.
Sixth: Last week’s book club zoom a success. I can not say the same for the BJ thread. The BJ thread book club clearly needs someone/s to help start the discussion and keep things moving along. I cannot be in two places at once, so I see three possible ways forward: 1) we have someone/s live blogging the Adam Schiff portion and see if that helps get the BJ thread going, 2) someone volunteers to serve as facilitator in the BJ threads, and 3) we hold the book club meetings in BJ threads after the series of book club zooms is over.
Seventh: We will have more time for questions than I anticipated. Questions for this week should relate to the book and/or to the insurrection because that was one of the themes Adam Schiff found most interesting. Questions for the second meeting can be more wide ranging as the theme is “where do we go from here, and how do we still have hope”.
If you are interested in asking a question, please share your question in this thread or by sending email to WaterGirl. There will likely not be time for all the questions to be asked, but please share your questions in advance.
