WVIA Page Turners Book Club

Welcome to the WVIA Page Turners Book Club!

 

Do you love curling up with a good book? Enjoy socializing with other like-minded book lovers? Love staying up all night because you can't stop turning the pages of your latest read? Then we invite you to join our book club, fittingly titled the WVIA Page Turners.

The WVIA Page Turners is a book club of WVIA Public Media, the NPR and PBS affiliate station of Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania.

In alignment with the mission of WVIA, the purpose of the Page Turners is to educate, inspire, entertain, and promote diverse cultures and perspectives. While we plan to highlight PBS and NPR programming, we aim to enrich our commitment to the arts, support our local libraries, and bring people together.

The Page Turners book club will take place across multiple platforms including on social media, on radio, and at in-person events. To become a Page Turner, all you need to do is start participating. The book club is free and open to everyone!

How can you join the new book club?

It’s free and simple! To become a WVIA Page Turner, participate by:

  • Join us at our kickoff and finale events
  • Participate in weekly discussion on social media
  • Tune in to WVIA Radio
  • Form your own discussion groups with friends or at your local library
  • Attend special "beyond the book" opportunities - events you won't want to miss

Join the Page Turners Email List

It's the best way to stay in-the-know with everything going on in the book club! We will send periodic updates about our current book selection, interesting and fun articles that coincide with our selection and other NPR and PBS programming, news about exciting upcoming book club events, and more!

Fall Book Selection

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.

For your one time pledge of $40, we will send you a copy of the book to thank you for your support. (Note - please click below and search "Alchemist" in the Gift List field.)

We’d like to extend a special thank you to The Otto Bookstore for their sponsorship.
