BCS Chapter Chats

First BCS Chapter Chat of the year

Last September, Belgrade Central School decided to form a book club for staff members who are regular readers in their personal time. They quickly dubbed the meetings “Chapter Chats” and they met seven times over the course of last school year.

Members share books that they enjoy from fiction to memoirs and even arranged a movie outing last year to compare a book they had read to the film version.

“The discussion, food, and friendship [the group provided] were an added bonus to our year at BCS,” said book club member Jenna Zemrak. “We look forward to reading even more during our second year, picking a theme for each month and meeting for chats at local businesses and members homes.”

  1. I so enjoyed reading about your book club and will look for the books you read at my local library. I hope you keep sharing your club’s experiences, and have a great school year!
