Book Club Bonding

USA Today Best Years

Teresa Grella-Hillebrand, director of the Counseling and Mental Health Professions Clinic at the Joan and Arnold Saltzman Community Services Center, was interviewed about the emotionally bonding that takes place within book clubs for an article that appears in USA Today’s Best Years 2018 Fall/Winter Issue.

Professor Grella-Hillebrand says book clubs are a phenomena because of “4 Cs” – 

Members value …

connecting with others through the shared experience of reading a book;

committing to a group of people and completing the reading assignment on time to have a fun and productive discussion;

the continuity of their meetings;

and the camaraderie they experience during their meetings and the friendships that extend outside the book club setting.
