No is for Wimps Book Club - February 2013
It's so hard to find a good book club. Half the group doesn't finish the reading, the meeting date gets postponed indefinitely and the friends you really want to invite live across the country.
Enter NIFW's book club! We're kicking off 2013 with an online book club that unites thoughtful readers around the world. We'll converse about the book, regardless of location, in a smart online discussion. You'll get to nerd out with others who like to close read and who care about plot, language, character development, but most importantly a good story.
Join us for the month of February, when we'll read and discuss The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling. (You know you're dying to see what Rowling's writing is like in a post-Harry Potter world…)
How it works:
- Get reading! You can read the whole book before February 1 or you can read as the month goes… discussion will be organized so you won't encounter spoilers along the way but can jump right in debating the ending on February 1 if you want!
- On February 1, join the online conversation curated by Jen Dary and start your own threads based on what you find interesting, challenging or worth discussing
- Appreciate the book while making friends around the world
Registration for February's book club is limited to 20 readers and costs $20. Join us!
What is No Is For Wimps?
Inspired by Dave Egger's 2000 interview in the Harvard Advocate, NIFW is a site dedicated to the pursuit of creative endeavors. Lots of us grow up with creative talents that, for one reason or another, don't make it into our day jobs. NIFW is a site designed to nurture the creativity back into our adult lives - to make a little time and space for a creative hobby.
In 2007, NIFW was an online literary magazine that supported artists, singers, writers and other creative folk through its bi-weekly publication. Online courses are the next incarnation of the brand and we're excited to share it with the world!
NIFW is established and led by Jen Dary, a user-experience designer with a background in writing and literature… and self-proclaimed project-a-holic. She acutely understands the difficulties in finding time and energy to fit creative projects into daily life and is excited to support others in their own creative quests.
Jen led Creative Summer Camp, the first NIFW course, in June 2012 and coordinates the NIFW book club.
