Book Circle

Reading Group

Course Description

TMI's Book Circle, a book reading group, takes place every three weeks during the summer of 2020 on Zoom.

Participants will be asked to read a book of their choice by the selected author each session: This can be a re-read of a favourite book or a new discovery. The discussions will focus not on a summary but on an analysis of the work read. Each of the twelve weekly participants will present for five minutes followed by open discussion. Biographical information will be sent out in advance.

The discussion group is free of charge and registration is required; please note there are limited places.

The Book Circle is one of our free online pilot projects for the summer 2020 period. If there is interest in holding a similar group after this trial, we will shift to a paid model.

As a reminder, to use Zoom you will need to create an account at and please watch this video that will explain how to join a Zoom meeting. Read our page about TMI and Zoom to learn the basics of the software and our recommended best practices.
