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 2018 list are recommendations from Grand Council. 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 (Wonder is out now and Ready Player One is out in March)! Each month, starting in January, we’ve posted a list of questions to help you lead discussions with friends and fellow Pi Phis. We will be reading along with you here at Headquarters. We’d love to see and hear what your club thinks about each book, so please post, share and tag us in your book club get-togethers.

Join our Facebook group today!
