Mission and values

FIGT Book Club will provide community service and resources, where curiosity, connection, and collaboration happen through books and writers.

Book club facilitators

Sarah Kobrus and Doreen Cumberford

What to expect

A bi-monthly international gathering on Zoom, focusing on globally mobile writers who have published books. Gatherings will include meeting the author, Q & A by book club host, then questions will be open to the audience. We are aiming for a regular date for the live meeting, proposed for the third Monday of the month. The time will be flexible (due to time zones) and so will vary.
