Here’s a nifty new activity to liven up book club!
This summer, we Corsair’s Cove authors had a blast creating character cards for some of our recent books, and it struck me that it would be a fun thing for a book group to do.
You can use sources like unsplash.com to find photos and Canva for layout templates, and spend a happy hour or two (or, ahem, a lot more) putting together a card for your favourite character or setting.
The possibilities are endless: the heroine, the villain, personality quirks, most riveting scene, best pets….
You can all agree ahead of time which character(s) to profile, and then compare your cards when you get together and see how different (or similar) they are.
Or each person can choose who or what they want to put on their cards, and when the group gets together, you can talk about your choices.
Just as examples, here are the cards I made for Siena Panati and Joe Johanssen of Secret Vintage:
I had so. Much. Fun.
Wishing you the same,
