What is a Reading Circle?
A reading circle is a group of people who get together to explore a topic in further detail through the medium of books. Reading circles work best with 5 or 6 participants: one person is the facilitator, another is the note‐taker, and all members contribute equally to the discussion through insights and questions relating to or derived from the readings.

How it works:
Participants are divided into groups of 5‐6 at Reading Circle Opening Event
Small group facilitators will be introduced
Small groups schedule first meeting at Opening Event and agree to meet again once or twice
Groups can decide how to divide readings (read all then discuss bits or read a few chapters at time)
Participants are encouraged to join our Facebook group and participate in discussions at: www.facebook.com/worldleisureviu


More about the World Leisure Centre of Excellence . . .
The World Leisure Centre of Excellence at Vancouver Island University brings together scholars, practitioners and public audiences from around the globe to share innovative ideas, engage in dialogue and collaborate in research and learning around the concepts of sustainability and innovation. We believe that sustainability starts with the concept of “self- sustainability” and individual well-being, concepts discussed at length in the book Overwhelmed and we look forward to engaging others in conversation about how leisure can play a more central role in our lives to achieve greater balance.
