HOW MUCH DOES BOOKCLUB COST?
A four-month Bookclub membership costs $160 for the complete package.
To save $10 on your membership, sign up to pick up your books at a local pick up location in the KC-Metro: Blade & Timber Town Center, Blade & Timber Power & Light or Landmark National Bank in Prairie Village.
WHAT BOOKS ARE WE READING?
We believe surprises bring joy to everyday life. We can guarantee each book will be a nationally recognized book, with a focus on personal and professional growth.
However, if you find you’ve read one of the books in this first Bookclub session, we will work with you to invite a guest for that month’s session. We still highly encourage you to read along with us – even if you’ve read the book once before.
“To reread a book is to read a different book. The reader is different. The meaning is different.”
WHAT IF I DON'T LIVE IN KANSAS CITY?
To get the most out of a Bookclub membership, interested members are welcome to join if they reside in the Greater Kansas City Metro.
We intend to meet in real life in March and April 2021, so members should be able to attend in-person events.
At Swell Spark, we’re fun-enthusiasts. Swell Spark is working to create ways to forge intentional relationships that go beneath the surface.
We’ve teamed up with Landmark National Bank to bring you Bookclub. Landmark National Bank believes nothing is more powerful than being part of a group that is hungry to become the best version of themselves. Sharing a book lets us challenge ideas while gaining wisdom and encouragement from others.
We can’t wait to meet you, virtually.
