When teachers gather to discuss literature, they tap into their love of reading. The success of Page Turners Book Club for teachers suggests that recreational reading is experiencing a revival, with book clubs in the foreground. We recognized that effective professional development in literacy must include a sustained, personal examination of our interaction with reading. On 24th April, interweaving pleasure the book club members got together and enjoyed literature and the social nature of a book probing literacy from different angles. The book read was Jhumpa Lahiri’s “Namesake” and the discussion was based on literature analysing personal perspectives.
