Welcome to Rad Reads Online Book Club Guide. Here we’re sharing information on how to launch and manage an online book club. Our book club invites graduate students at the University of Illinois’ iSchool to discuss books online.

You’ll find information here on finding a good platform, selecting books, marketing your book club and facilitating discussions.

Please offer comments, suggestions and questions. We’d love to hear from you.
