Montreal Book Clubs and Blue Met

On the news that Mark Zuckerberg has started his own online book club, I recalled that this year, we've put a great deal of efforts into recruiting local Montreal book clubs to get involved in the Festival.

What we are aiming to do is work with local Francophone and Anglophone book clubs, releasing

some non-official information about some of our writers early so that book clubs can do some pre-reading of Festival authors before they arrive. Then at the Festival, book club members will be given a big discount on all-Festival passes, free space to meet with their members to discuss books, and even the opportunity to meet the authors in question at a private function.

This is a great opportunity to meet some fascinating writers and to recruit new members for your book club.

As usual, our authors come from many countries around the world: the US, the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Mexico, Argentina, and many, many others. (In addition to, of course, Canada and Quebec).

If you have a book club and want to take advantage of all that we are offering local clubs this spring at Blue Met 2015 (April 20 - 26), send us details. Again, we will provide you with a very great deal on our all-Festival pass, space for your members, some online promotion for your club, "sneak previews" of authors scheduled for the Festival and, of course, some excellent books to read and discuss!

Hope to see you all at Blue Met 2015!
