Take some time to consider your stakeholders — those people who might have an interest in participating in a book club. ┬áThese might include students, staff, faculty, even community members. You may want to think even more granularly: undergraduate students? First year students?

The following questions are meant to help you think through who might be interested in participating in your book club.


  • Who are the main stakeholders on my campus?
  • What activities exist for these groups on my campus?
  • Who on my campus would benefit the most at this moment in time from having book-related conversations?
