For Book Clubs

Thank you so much for your interest in discussing my books at your book club!

I’ve had such a good time virtually visiting book clubs that I’d love to visit 21 in 2021. So if your book club is discussing one of my books and wants me to Zoom or FaceTime or Skype in for 20 minutes, please email me at and we can work it out.

If you’re looking for a book club guide for The Light We Lost, you can find it here.

If you’re looking for a book club guide for More Than Words, you can find it here.

If you’re looking for a book club guide for Everything After, you can find it here.

For every book I’ve written, I’ve created a playlist of songs that encapsulate the book for me. Some book clubs have let me know that they’ve played the songs during their meetings. If you’d like to recreate my playlists, here are they are:
