I cannot wait to use this with my book club! We just finished reading Firekeeper's Daughter for our book of the month, and on a whim I decided to check and see if there was a book club kit for it. BINGO! I'm so excited to talk through all of these discussion questions with my club, and I loved all of the recommendations and resources included in the kit as well. The pretty printable bookmark is an added bonus.

This is a great collection of questions for book club or for the lone reader who would like to put more thought into the book's meaning.

Great resource for book clubs to use alongside the book! The interview with the author is wonderful and the questions really help you connect with the book on a deeper level. Thank you NetGalley for this Book club kit!

ADMISSION: I haven't read Firekeeper's Daughter - SORRY ANGELINE BOULLEY (don't hate me, I'll redeem myself further down) -yes, I know this was not created by the author...but still! 
I chose this kit for a few different reasons, none of which were for its intended purpose (I know, I know...I'm THE WORST)- BUT this is the coolest kit I've opened so far and I'm only halfway through the letter from the author. 

What's included that I think is pretty rad: 
- fun and interesting facts about the author that pertain to the story
- a content/trigger warning section
- mini-view with Angeline on the creation and publishing of the book and cover art, and why certain themes were incorporated in 
- printable, color and cover matching bookmarks with quotes! (we can't ever have enough bookmarks for all those TBR books that we will NEVER EVER FINISH)
-  WHAT TO READ NEXT (FEAT. INDIGENOUS AUTHORS)....ya'll THIS IS THE BOMB.COM! Kudos and so much love for giving a massive shout-out to other books by Indigenous authors and recommending that readers pick  them up. In the age of me-me-me, it's refreshing to see.
- A list of organizations to support Indigenous communities, what they do and link to their website
- Additional resources to assist readers who are facing any struggles that they'll encounter while reading Firekeeper's Daughter - FREE, and with 24/7 AVAILABILITY!!! 


Ok,, so basically all of it was pretty rad - and the best part? I've now decided to read this BECAUSE of the kit

Excellent resource! We will be using this next school year as this book is one of our State Recommended titles that we use in book club. Thank you for the great kit!

I love this book! All the characters feel so fleshed out and real to me. I was engaged from page 1 to the end and the book never got boring (which I love). There was always something that made my brain go 100 miles a minute and I was constantly trying to figure out what the conclusion to this book would be. Overall, I loved a lot about this book, it's cover and contents. I was also lucky enough to buy a signed copy with sprayed edges which is absolutely gorgeous and a perfect addition to my shelves.

This book was great. My typical, and favorite genre to read is adult historical fiction. However, this young adult mystery was a welcome surprise. There were numerous cultural references regarding Native American practices and belief systems. I am now into my three years as a librarian and I am working on diversifying our collection. I have been adding more titles, such as this one to allow readers more freedom of choice when visiting our library. Our adult book club can't wait to read this book. I have this book scheduled for our August book club meeting. I am using the materials provided in the book club kit. 
This arc and book club kit was provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

An excellent Guide for book clubs about this particular book. My books club will use this in June when we read this book.

Very informative and well put together book club kit. The questions will be very helpful when my book club discusses the book.

I used this book club kit with my book club and we all loved it. The questions were thought-provoking and guided great discussions. I appreciated the content warning page, however, when I looked at this guide I had already known about the sensitive material within the story. I enjoyed reading the interview with the author and it allowed me to bring up additional information/inspiration to the group. We love knowing the how and why of an author and their work. I highly recommend this book club kit to others who are reading this book.

Phenomenal resource for educators or anyone interested in facilitating a book club with The Firekeeper’s Daughter. Bright, clear pages and comprehensive content.

The Firekeeper's Daughter is a book that will stay in my mind long after we finished reading it. Angeline Boulley is truly a master storyteller and it shows in every carefully chosen sentence. Reading her interview was very enlightening, particularly as it relates to doors and windows. I completely understand what she meant about some windows needing to have curtains and choosing what to incorporate and what to keep private and sacred. I love that she is truly a Firekeeper's Daughter! It was interesting to learn about her past job and how she was able to use her storytelling gift in that area as well. This was a very interesting book club kit!

I loved this book and this kit is absolutely amazing. There’s an interview with the author and thought provoking question that will make any book club meetup fun. Printable bookmarks was a nice touch. And I always appreciate recommendations for other books.

This is such a good idea. I loved the discussion questions, author letter and interview. The bookmarks were such a great addition to this kit as well. I can not wait to print them and hand them out at my book club meeting. I printed out the author letter to go with my hardback copy of this book as well. 

Thank you NetGalley for sending me this kit in exchange for a review.

So happy there is a kit for this book! ♥️

I read this novel at the beginning of the year and was captivated by the story telling and knew I wanted to include this in my class’s reading curriculum but honestly was struggling with creativity for creating an engaged experience that still handled these topics with sensitivity. 

Looking forward to sharing this novel with my students and using the kit to help us all along. The discussion questions are of course great, but also loved the recommendations for books also by indigenous authors and ways to support their community. The author interview was so insightful and impactful!
