Our Book Club reads and discusses personal development books.

What to Expect

Books are requested by and voted on by Sage Sisters Members. Book topics fall into the categories of mindset and our inner selves, relationships and communication, spiritual growth, physical wellbeing, and practical living.

The Book Club is facilitated by Janet Tamassia. We begin with a 15-20 minute overview of the book and its main ideas, then have an open, free-flowing discussion with questions to help facilitate our dialogue. The book overview is recorded and shared with Members.

Our discussions are open, thoughtful, and respectful. Members are encouraged to read the books they believe will help them discover, learn, and grow. Participation in all discussions is optional.

When We Meet

Book Club discussions are held every other month. Members are surveyed 3 times a year to give their input on when we meet, but generally we meet on a weeknight (Mon-Thu) from 7:30-9:00pm ET on Zoom.

"I have generally always focused on professional development and when, during the pandemic lockdowns, I started rethinking many things. Then I met Janet and she invited me to check out her book club. After one book club zoom, I joined. One of my best pandemic decisions! I have read books that have been on my top read list for years, books and authors I’ve never heard of and I have learned SO MUCH. I have also connected with amazing women who at first glance I’d think I have nothing in common with, but after discussing books and sharing our troubles and triumphs, have found so many new and positive connections." - Sage Sisters Member
