Permission Granted for Reading Groups

This is a story about giving yourself permission to be who you really are.

And what could be better than exploring the ideas of permission and being who you really are and vulnerability and authenticity with your book club friends??

If you’ve got the book club, we’ve got the book. (Secret of life: you don’t have to ALREADY have a book club. Text a handful of friends and invite them over to talk about the book and eat finger foods. Instant book club!)

Let’s make this happen!

Download the Reading Group Guide

Okay, now that the friends are on their way over, what happens next??

Next you download the Reading Group Guide! It’s full of discussion questions, topics to explore, and suggestions for self-reflection and connection.

Everything you could need is in there. (Other than the snacks. My friend Daneen used to bring dates stuffed with walnuts to our meetings and I will tell you, no one was ever sad about this.)

Invite Melissa to Join the Club (Virtually!)

Want me to Skype into your book club meeting? Well of course you do! We’ll talk about all the things.

How to Request a Skype call:

  1. Have each member of your book club preorder a copy of Permission Granted
  2. Download your Reading Group Guide
  3. Email our team to request a call. Let us know what days and times your reading group usually meets, and in what time zone
  4. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible!

And Then… Start Reading!

I mean, SOME book clubs get together to eat the walnut-stuffed dates and talk about the weather, but I’m sure YOURS is all about the books, am I right?

When you do get together, get a group shot of you with your books and share it! I’d love to see your faces. xo!
