This is such a fun, engaging book club kit! I love reading interviews with authors, and hearing about what inspired them to write their novel. The included discussion questions are perfect for encouraging deeper exploration of the book's characters and themes, the kit is easily printable/accessible and I loved how Netgalley began including on their sites. Will definitely use in the near future with my very own book club.

I just read the book club kit for THE CHICKEN SISTERS by KJ Dell’Antonia & think that it would be a fun addition to any bookclub meeting. Containing several questions to get the conversation going, this kit will make discussing the book easy & fun. The recipe at the back looks delicious. The Q & A with the author reads like she wrote the notes to you directly. This is a delightful addition to the book.
Thank you to NetGalley for the complimentary copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

This book is set up in three different sections: questions, interview, and recipes. I enjoyed all three sections of the book. I believe that the book is short, sweet, and to the point. There were no qualms that I had. The questions prompt a good length of conversation, the interview makes the author more personable, and the recipient would be good for a book club meeting.

The Chicken Sisters was such a fun read for me during 2021. This book club kit enhances my reflections on the novel. It includes discussion questions, an author interview, and some delicious sounding recipes based off of the novel! A must have for any book club gathering!

You need a guideline to host your book club meeting. Don't look further. With this kit you get everything to setup and host a successful and interesting meeting. Discussion questions are provided to drive conversations around the book. If you are interested in an interview with KG Dell'Antonia you will find this in this kit as well.
If you are wondering what to serve you will have a few ideas provided which comes from KJ's kitchen.
How fun is that? The design is very fun and all in all a nice tool to round up the book journey.

Though this book was not a favorite in our book club, the discussion questions in this book club kit helped move the discussion along. The questions were a nice supplement to the book and certainly helped create discussion, but I think the real "star" of the show were the recipes in the back--though I did find it interesting that the recipes were included in the book club kit and not the actual book, when food played such a large part in the story.

I read The Chicken Sisters and was excited to see the Book Club Kit for it here.  Our Book Club will be using it next month as we sit around, having chicken of course, and this will be helpful for our discussion. I love that there is a conversation with the author, KJ Dell'Antonia as I like to hear their thoughts behind the writing of a story.  But the best is the "secret" recipe for Frank's Family Fried Chicken. Yum. 
If your book club is reading this book, which I highly recommend, this guide will be a great help.
Thanks to #netgalley for this resource.

Ok. So I thought it would be a book but then it is a book kit with question that might be helpful for the ones reading the book or have already read it. And also there are receipes at the end😃

This book was sent to me as an ARC on Netgalley. However, all opinions were of my own. 
Unfortunately I was unable to read this book as I did not realise the book was only containing prompts for the book club including questions for each chapter.

My neighbors and I decided to start a monthly book club and are kicking it off with “The Chicken Sisters”. Having discussion questions is a must, so I am grateful that those have been provided in this kit. What I didn’t anticipate were the recipes that were included! I am so excited to make the cream pie recipe for us to eat as we discuss this book together.

This is a great resource for a book club. I am definitely going to read the underlying book and possibly will recommend that it be added to my book club's reading calendar for the upcoming year. We always have one meeting where we carry in food that is all themed around the book so this would be a great fit, especially since the reading guide contains recipes!

Great resource, I appreciate NetGalley offering this as an option for their readers! I was excited to find this when my book club started reading this book, and love the recipes included!

This is a great resource! I love that there are open ended questions to share with your book club group, and also a short interview with the author. It provides some good insight into the decisions make in the writing of the book. We always like to chat about the author at my book club, so I appreciate that this was included. There’s even some recipes in the back of this guide!

I really appreciated having this book club kit to think about this book on a deeper level. I would be helpful to have discussion questions at the back of every book. Sometimes the questions make me think about the good themes in a different way.

This is a great book club kit to go with the book.  My book club is always looking for discussion prompts, and I thought the questions in this kit were great to spark discussion. I really enjoyed the author interview and the recipes as well, since the whole time I was reading the book I wanted to be able to eat the food! I hope more of these kits are made for other books. They make hosting bookclub so easy!

THE CHICKEN SISTERS: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Reality cooking show, sort-of feuding (but really just annoyed with each other) sisters, and small town politics are the genealogy that make up this tale that could have used a little bit more heart and soul.

NOTE: I was provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Thanks Netgalley!

I'm obviously stupid and didn't know what a book club kit was. All the same, this was fantastic. Amazing ideas and questions for discussion.
