LitVersations©® The Book Conversation Game

LitVersations©® The Book Conversation Game is a project I’ve been working 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 LitVersation! So I created the questions I wanted. 70 questions to get the  LitVersation started!

 These questions open up 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

Book Lovers
Even if you don't belong to a book club or discussion group, you will still enjoy these questions, in analyzing your thoughts and feelings about the books you read! They also help in outlining your book reviews and comments you'd like to share in your social media circles or comments to the author. 

                                             Book clubs
 Take your book club discussions to a whole new level with this fun and interactive game that lets everyone come away satisfied about truly discussing a book.

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.

                                 Reviewers, Bloggers and Interviewers                                     Spice up your posts and interviews with some fresh questions that will get people talking and commenting. Open ended questions are a great way to get your followers to talk back to you

 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.
 You can use these cards with your book club and your children!!

Online Chat Facilitators

These questions are helpful in keeping the chat going

How to play Litversations©®

Each person in the group picks 5 cards from the freshly shuffled deck.
The moderator asks the first question from the card chosen, and
lets the person next to them answer.
The question goes around until everyone has answered.
 The next person asks the next question and repeats the above steps.
The game continues until all questions are answered.
The conversation may spin off into another direction,
but that’s ok, it’s part of the fun!

You can also divide up into 2 teams!
Pick an opposing side from the story.
The team, who makes their points, wins that round.

If no one liked the book, discuss why and how it could have been better.

You can pick a card as you go to keep the element of surprise.

You can have your LitVersation©® members’ act out the characters or answers
 for even more fun!

Allow the LitVersation©® to flow freely, letting everyone to express their views.

There is no right or wrong way to play, just have a

Wouldn't Change a Thing (Zane Presents) by Stacy Campbell (Jul 14, 2015)

Wouldn't Change a Thing 
Stacy Campbell
When skeletons fall out of the closet, on the day of your engagement party, and on the front page of the newspaper, things can only get worse. Toni has been hiding and lying about her mother who is a paranoid schizophrenic and regularly speaks to Clark Gable, Mahalia Jackson and Jesus.  “Bill Withers was her Thorazine, Marvin Gaye was her Prolixin and Natalie Cole was her Haldol.” She has been institutionalized for over 20 years and Toni and her sister has been raised with different family members, Toni by her 2 gay uncles which helped her to become a successful architect and cultured. The man of her dreams dumps her in the most unfortunate way leaving her no choice but to go home and deal with the demons.

This is an awesome story about love, family, true friendship and how to bloom where you are planted.

You make plans and God laughs. Mental illness is real and you can’t just hide them away and pretend they don’t exist. The universe has a way of making you deal with things left undone.

This story was beautifully told by a wonderful author who has quickly risen to be one of my top 10 consistent favorite authors and one to watch, This girl is gooood!!
