Back in March 2020 when the world changed forever, “The Phoenix Book Club” was born. 

It started as an open invitation to all MOVE members to simply talk or listen about anything even remotely related to the written or spoken word.  A weekly 30 minute call happened during those new months of lockdown and typically each call would begin with the question “So, what’s everyone reading or listening to?”

The Phoenix Book Club nowadays begins with an author review and then naturally moves into a journey of questions and discussions with a member who comes prepared to moderate.  What’s special about it?  Well, the fact that out of an open invitation to all MOVE members, this collection of people naturally fell into a rhythm during an unprecedented time in world history.  And also, that the book selections have bravely shifted into many genres of reading, some non-fiction based and heavy, and all the while the conversations have been balanced, respectful and open.
