Pi Phi Pages: A Virtual Book Club

Launched in January 2013, Pi Phi Pages is an interactive, online book club for members, both alumnae and collegians. Pi Phi Pages encourages participants to read a selected book each month, engage in discussion questions and “meet” other Pi Phis, as well as get involved with the Fraternity in a new way. The books that appear on the 2017 list are recommendations from notable Pi Phis and past Pi Phi Pages participants. Most of the following books inspired a movie, so you can choose to enjoy the novels in many ways: Buy the book through your local bookstore, read it on your eReader, check it out from the library, listen to it on CD or watch the film! Each quarter, starting in January, we will share discussion guides to help you lead discussions with friends and fellow Pi Phis.
