Virtual Book Club

Book Club

We have an exciting opportunity for teens and adults who enjoy reading. At the end of each month, a member of the museum’s staff will facilitate an online discussion (one for adults and another for teens) about a selected novel, memoir, or biography about World War II and the Holocaust. Next month's book selection will be announced at the end of the online discussion and then posted on our website and social media.

How Do I Participate?

  • Register online each for each month you plan to join.
  • Purchase or borrow a copy of the book.
  • Install Zoom on your computer or download the Zoom app onto your tablet or smartphone.
  • Join the online meeting on the planned date/time (you will receive a link to the online meeting after registering below).

We hope you enjoy this new initiative from the Museum of History and Holocaust Education. Please email Education Program Coordinator and Accessibility Specialist Tyler Crafton-Karnes with any questions.
