What is Booksurfing?

BookSurfing is a fun, new way to make connections --- providing an opportunity to learn more about people you know a lot, people you know a little or people you may not know at all. It uses any kind of text as a springboard to lively discussion.

How does it work? 

Group size is limited giving each participant the opportunity to read aloud from their selection of 1 1/2 pages - (about 400 words) from a book, a magazine, a poem or another source, even something you have written yourself. The text you chose will help others learn about you. Reading is followed by a discussion that may take us in directions we never expected.

What takes place?

This is a gathering bringing TTN members together to meet and explore through texts. The only moving force behind BookSurfing is curiosity and the ability to listen to others. And of course we will have munchies and a wonderful chance to mingle and make deeper connections. 

Quote from a Booksurfing participant:

“From literature we learn and explore, we reach different dimensions and discover new frontiers. Surfing invites freedom, it is flexible and enjoyable. BookSurfing is the mix of both, inviting people to learn and explore about each other in a comfortable and limitless environment.”

Join us and come connect to people in a new way this fall!


Two cats live in this home.
