Thematically Organized Kits for Book Clubs

Each book club kit is organized around broad themes that spark new thinking and encourage you to share your experiences and ideas. Each themed kit includes multiple books and videos, so you can plan a series of events around one theme, or embrace multiple themes, holding one club meeting for each. For more details on getting started, check out the User Guide and other resources.


Pushing the Limits of Connection

Pushing the Limits of Persistence

No matter the scale of the problem in front of us, our beliefs, traditions, and passions urge us to keep trying. And succeeding.


Themes for Book Clubs

Pushing the Limits of Nature

Be it human nature, or the nature of the world around us — these boundaries are constantly re-thought and re-defined.

Pushing the Limits of Knowledge

Through our families, friends, and communities we are always compelled to learn more from what others share with us.

Pushing the Limits of Motion

It might be forceful or slow moving. It might be moving across a room or across time. But we are always in motion.

Pushing the Limits of Tradition

It unites us, it defines who we are, and it provides shared experiences that bind us together.

Pushing the Limits of Transformation

Hammer it, shape it, tweak it — be it carpentry, machines, art, or human understanding — we never stop wanting to take things in hand and make them better.

Pushing the Limits of Heritage

How have you benefited from those who came before you? What will you leave behind for future generations?

Pushing the Limits of Community

Our communities create essential human connections; what we bring and what we take are all part of the ongoing equation.
