INSPIRATIONAL BOOK CLUB (IBC) Meeting Place of Inspiring Minds
Inspirational Book Club (IBC) is a meeting place of inspiring minds with a common interest in receiving inspiration from books that have transformed famous people's lives. This is an excellent opportunity to discuss and to cultivate the life-changing habit of reading books for ourselves.
The group is established on the Internet, will meet once a month initially in Richmond Hill , then eventually at City Hall in Toronto . We are using the collaborative tools of a social networking website called Meetup.com to get the word out about this unique club as well as organize the attendance.
We are attempting to procure books for lively and absorbing discussion at no charge or at a good discounted price for you- enabling everyone to participate. We warmly welcome your suggestions for books, authors and speakers.
We prefer to bring local authors, who may also be able to give a talk related to the book, so that we can also have a joint meeting with Friends of Heart--another group focusing on mind, body and soul. A resource centre will be established for members to borrow such books as well as DVD's and CD's.
OBJECTIVES OF IBC
Share inspiring life experiences through meetings, our website, and blog
Learn from established leaders and authors
Provide access to resources dealing with such books
