I've had so many requests for book club meetings in so many different places that we're going to try a call-in format this Wednesday evening to see if this might be a better way to talk to book clubs. The details on how to attend are listed below. Please call-in if you can. If this works, we'll do more of these on a regular basis. Thanks.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE IN "The Lace Reader" BOOK CLUB MEETING?
It's easy. Just visit the EVENT HOMEPAGE LINK shown above and you'll find all the information you need to attend. We recommend that you print out that page for future reference so that you'll have all the information handy for the actual event.
CAN I SUBMIT QUESTIONS?
Absolutely. The EVENT HOMEPAGE LINK has an area that let's you send Brunonia your questions. You can submit your questions at any time, you can even do it during the meeting itself. However, your chances of getting your questions answered are better if you submit them sooner rather than later. And it's perfectly fine to submit more than one question but please enter them one at a a time by pressing the SUBMIT after each question you enter. Be sure provide your name, location, and book club name (if you have one) so that Brunonia can identify you in case she needs to discuss your question directly with you.
HOW LONG WILL THE MEETING LAST?
The meeting is scheduled to last one hour.
THIS ISN'T THE NORMAL MEETING TIME FOR MY BOOK CLUB, CAN WE STILL ATTEND EVEN IF WE ARE NOT ALL IN THE SAME PLACE?
Sure. The great thing about this call-in book club format is that the members of your book club can be in separate places and each one of them can still listen either via phone or by webcast. Of course, if you are together in one location, all you need is a single speakerphone that is loud enough for everyone to hear or a computer with good speakers if you elect to use the the webcast option.
WHAT'S A WEBCAST AND HOW DO I USE IT?
A webcast is a way to listen to the book club meeting using your computer instead of a phone. When you go the EVENT HOMEPAGE LINK, you'll see both a phone number (for those that want to use a telephone) as well as a "Listen Live Via Web" PLAY button (the PLAY button is only active during the actual time of the meeting). The advantage of the webcast option is that you don't have to pay for a phone call (you do have to have a fast Internet connection like DSL or Cable Modem). There are two ways to use the "Listen Live Via Web" option: FLASH player and POP-UP player. If you are not sure, try the FLASH player option first. If that doesn't work simply switch to the POP-UP player.
MY BOOK CLUB WILL BE AT MY HOUSE THAT NIGHT. HOW DO WE LISTEN BY PHONE?
Just go to the EVENT HOMEPAGE LINK. There you'll find the phone number to call and and the CONFERENCE ID#. Then just before the event starts (say a minute or two before), dial the phone number and enter the CONFERENCE ID# when you are asked for it. Be sure to press the # key on your phone after you enter the ID#. You will then be connected to the book club event. If you call in early, just stay on the line until the events starts.
I'M JUST AN INDIVIDUAL READER, NOT A BOOK CLUB. CAN I STILL PARTICIPATE?
Of course. Just call in by phone or use the webcast option. You can go the EVENT HOMEPAGE LINK and submit any questions you might have.
CAN PEOPLE HEAR WHAT WE SAY DURING THE EVENT?
To protect your privacy and to keep the noise level down, book club call-in participants are normally muted out so you can say whatever you want and no one will hear you. However, Brunonia does have the ability to un-mute everyone on the phones and depending on the number of people on the call and other factors, she may in fact do that (don't worry, she'll announce it just before she flips the switch). In this case, she will call on a particular person or book club to speak to as this is the only way to keep some sense of order. If everyone starts talking at the same time, no one will be heard and she'll have to mute everyone again. If you've elected to use the webcast option, there's no way for you to speak and be heard by others even if Brunonia un-mutes everyone. The webcast method is "listen only" option.
IS THERE A WAY TO LISTEN TO WHAT WAS SAID AFTER THE EVENT?
Yes. Within 30 minutes after the call has ended, a complete recording will be posted at the EVENT HOMEPAGE LINK. Simply go to that webpage and click on the PLAY button.
