About Stephen Heiner

Hi Everyone!

For some years now I have been running multiple book clubs in my home city of Paris.  When lockdowns began happening in early 2020, I moved all of them online.  While this kept those of us still in Paris on a regular schedule, it also allowed people who were outside of Paris (and even outside Europe) to participate.  At the same time I had taken on a small project for a group in which I offered short video book reviews.

So, I've decided to make these changes permanent by creating a Patreon that specializes in books.  I will host a book discussion at least once a month, at 5:30pm Saturday, Paris time. 11:30am New York time.  If you can't make it, you will be able to submit your comments and questions ahead of time to be read on your behalf, and you'll be able to access a recording of the discussion to view at your leisure.  We'll also have a community page in which we can discuss various aspects of the books.

I'll also record a review of at least one book per month from my "Hall of Fame" list - the books that have mattered most in my life and which I keep coming back to.  To get a reference for the types of books we will be likely to read, click here.

Because I want the book discussions to be small in number (no more than 12-15) this particular Patreon is not meant to grow to a large number.  I want to keep it what I intend it to be: a small side project.

One of the great rewards I've found of running book clubs is the ability to read books I would not otherwise have on my own, simply because of the accountability and community aspects of such group readings.  If you've been wanting to read more books but aren't sure how, here's your chance!
