Book Clubs

If your book club enjoys taking a trip to the past, then they will probably enjoy one of these novels. And if your club is looking for a few questions to jumpstart the meeting, why not check out these Reading Group Guides below?

In addition to these questions, if your book club chooses any of these novels, Kate will speak with your group via a speakerphone chat! This is your opportunity to ask the author any question you want: which characters in the novel are true to history, will the novel be turned into a movie, how long did it take to get published, and is it really true that the Romans ate live fish.
