Online Book Clubs were founded as a forum to promote novels that lift the veil off of some facet of life and expose the reader to it up close and personal.
The book clubs were also founded to increase the number of urban readers and to be a platform where the literary works of writers who are from around the globe can be discussed. With this said, our editorial team carefully selects novels and books that brings the urban culture to the world and the world to the urban culture. In doing so we keep with our Mission Statement to educate urban people about what is going on in the world around them while at the same time educationg those who reside external to this world about what is going on in the world and in urban communities globally. They learn how urban people arrive at their ideas, philosophies and opinions.
There are two book clubs: Macavelli Online Book Club and the Macavelli Book Club. The editorial staff at Macavelli chooses one book per month as its feature novel to be read by its members in both book clubs. Although, the two book clubs meet at different times and in various locations throughout the world, both book clubs read the same novel.
The Macavelli Online Book Club meets online on the last Saturday of the month in Macavelli Chat at 12 noon (PST). And the host or hostess of the Macavelli Book Club in its various locations arranges its meeting dates and times in accordance with its members.
At Macavelli, we invite you to form a local chapter of Macavelli Book Club at your school, your local library or at another location in your city or community.
