The next meeting of the All Good Books Club will be held at 7:00 PM tonight, Thursday, August 14, 2014 at the Leawood Pioneer Library (4700 Town Center Drive, Leawood, KS) to discuss Calling Invisible Women by Jeanne Ray.

Come and join us even if you haven’t read the book! We’ll be discussing  issues that everyone can relate to!

In the back of the book is a Reader’s Guide with thirteen questions that should foster good discussion. The questions are also available at http://www.readitforward.com/calling-invisible-women-reading-guide/ 

I’ve added a few questions for discussion, if time permits.

  1. Have you ever felt invisible? What caused it and what was the solution?
  2. Clover and her husband playfully talk about the super power they’d want if it was possible to choose one. What super power would you like to have and why?
  3. How did you react to the school bus ride with the two invisible women combating bullying?
  4. Do you think the invisible Clover handled the tattoo parlor scene in the best way? Why? What would you have done?
  5. What did you think of the fact that Vlad could see that Clover was invisible, but Clover’s own husband and children couldn’t? What enabled Vlad to see her invisibility?
  6. Evie was clearly “visible” while her mother Clover was “invisible.” Why do you suppose that was the case? What does it say about society and people in general?
  7. What was your reaction to Arthur spending a significant period of time at the end of the day sitting in the office looking at boats and bicycles on the web? Did he deserve the beak? Was he cheating his family of his time?
  8. How did you react to the organizational efforts of the invisible women at the end of the book? Would you do the same? Did you find humor or irony in it? Any parallels to life and history?
  9. What was the greatest “take-away” or lesson you learned from the book?
