Starting a Book Club at College
Hey guys, I'm an English student at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. While there is an English club here, they only meet once every three weeks, and there is always a guest speaker so the students can rarely talk about what they are interested in. I asked around and found a few people who would be interested in a book club, and I was wondering if you guys had any pointers on getting it up and running.
The first problem I came up with is getting the word out. Most student organizations advertise through posters, and I thought it might be a cool idea to use Photoshop to blow up a Fight Club book cover, but change "Fight" to "Book" with the same font (I have no idea how hard/copyright infringing this would be do to, because I suck at Photoshop and don't know much about piracy:11: ) I figured Fight Club would be good as opposed to another book cover because, obviously, the name can be changed easily, and most people I've talked to didnt even know Fight Club exists as a book ( :wtf1: ) This could be used to possibly get some non-readers interested. What do you guys think?
