The Four Books
Here are the four books selected for 2019. They all look like wonderful reads and will lead to interesting discussions. Looking forward to the 58th Banff Book Discussion, particularly with Katerena Vermette as the guest author.
Facilitating a Discussion Group
We make facilitating easy! We even give you the questions to help with the discussion.
- A facilitator guides the discussion – not required to lead the discussion
- Facilitators are provided with a number of questions, from the BBDW society discussion coordinator, which can be used to help with the discussion.
- The facilitator does not have to be an expert and is not required to present a lecture on the book.
In each group there will be members of the board to help move the discussion along – if required. It is not often that discussions need help, as participants are eager to contribute and the books have been selected because they are worthy of discussion.
- Each discussion group requires a facilitator, which means we will need about 20 facilitators during the weekend. If you think that you can help with this please indicate on the brochure or complete the form below and we will get back to you via email. Discussion questions will be sent to you, when they are completed.
