“Hello My name is Debra Owsley and I am the owner and creator of Simply Said Reading Accessories. I create, by hand, reading accessories and book candy for book lovers. Recently, I ve added a new project to my collection, and I would like to introduce it to you, your business and your group. I have created a Book Conversation Game, I ve named LitVersations. Lit-Versations The Book Conversation Game is a project I ve worked VERY hard to bring to life for over two years. This idea came to me while listening to people discuss books and being interviewed asking the same questions over and over again. It was like the same questions, different book and same questions different author. I wanted meatier questions; questions that were open ended and lead into a deeper conversation, a real Lit-Versation!”
So I created the questions I wanted to ask, 70 questions to get the Lit-Versation started!
Readers and Book Clubs:
- These questions open up a refreshing dialogue with new and interesting perspectives.
- A fun interactive ice breaker
- Helps others understand other interpretations of the story
- Promotes richer exchanges and inspires thought
- Great for authors to take along to gatherings
- Great gift for book lovers and book clubs
- Helps discussions stay on track and active
- Great for ages
These cards are great to take along when visiting book clubs, just in case the conversation get a little slow, and they make a wonderful gift to the book club. Also I know some authors say how hard it is to write discussion questions about your books, these questions can aide you in creating some thought provoking questions.
Teachers and Parents:
In researching I chose two teachers to test these game cards. Each teacher (Middle and High School) used the cards to either have a discussion in class about a book they read or they were used as homework questions and the feedback I got back was inspiring!
The students really got into a great discussion and a much better concept of the story and structure of creative writing. I ve just recently have had 2 college professors purchase.
Play with your children to help them get a better grasp of comprehending the story and characters.
