Virtual book club: Readicide


What: The Michigan Reading Association is hosting an interactive virtual book club for anyone to join via Facebook.   This is an opportunity to network with educators around the world and take charge of your own professional development.  The first book is Readicide by Kelly Gallagher (who will be hosting the book club with the Michigan Reading Association).  If you aren’t familiar with this book, you can read a post I wrote when the book was first released here.  The idea behind the virtual book club is to give educators a place to connect with others, share ideas, reflect and improve your classroom.

Where: It is easy to join just click to view the Facebook invitation and select “I’m Attending.

When: The book club will meet during the month of May.  Login whenever you are available to browse posts and conversations and add your own thoughts.  Each week there will be a post that outlines a general road map that chunks chapters so we are reading and reflecting at a similar pace.

How: Purchase Readicide, view Kelly’s website and follow him on Twitter, “attend” the facebook invitation, let the fun begin!

I really enjoyed reading Readicide and look forward to reading it again-this time with friends to reflect with!  Who else will be joining us?

Thank you to Erin for inviting me!

  1. Kelly,

    Thank you so much for helping to spread the invitation to others. This is the Michigan Reading Association’s first virtual book club via Facebook. We couldn’t be more excited as Kelly Gallagher is helping us to connect educators all over the country to discuss such a powerful read as Readicide.

    I love your original post you did on his book, and I continue to enjoy all of your work — especially following the success of your new school. You continue to inspire me everyday!!

    Looking forward to digging deeper into the book with you and many others in May!


    Erin Klein
