Hi Kristin,

I’m reaching out from Soulpepper Theatre Company, a local not-for-profit theatre company here in Toronto, to let you know about a play and literary event we have coming up in July. We are presenting the Canadian Premiere of Orlando<https://soulpepper.ca/performances/orlando/5784>, written by Virginia Woolf and adapted for the stage by Sarah Ruhl. We’re thrilled to be presenting this literary masterpiece and many of us here were inclined to read Woolf’s novel throughout June ahead of the show. This gave us the idea to start the Soulpepper Book Club, which is something I believe would be of interest to you.

The way it would work is that you and/or anyone in your club that are interested in joining us would read Virginia Woolf’s Orlando, at your own pace over the next month. There will be Book Club questions posted weekly to our Facebook<https://www.facebook.com/SoulpepperTheatre/> and Twitter<https://twitter.com/Soulpepper> using #SoulpepperBookClub. At the end of the next four weeks the reading would culminate in seeing a performance of Orlando on July 6<http://tickets.youngcentre.ca/single/EventDetail.aspx?p=10843&promo=BOOKCLUB> (7:30 PM), July 8<http://tickets.youngcentre.ca/single/EventDetail.aspx?p=10845&promo=BOOKCLUB> (1:30 PM), or July 10<http://tickets.youngcentre.ca/single/EventDetail.aspx?p=10846&promo=BOOKCLUB> (7:30 PM), which would be followed by a literary focused artists-led talkback for you and the other Soulpepper Book Club participants. This discussion would be like any other book club meeting, you would have the opportunity to talk about the novel, through a moderated discussion, with other book clubbers and literary minded people. It would also be an opportunity to delve further into the ways reading the novel informed your experience while seeing the version adapted for the stage.

We would love to see you and your other club members out at the theatre to join us for this inaugural launch of our Book Club. Tickets are $62 including both the performance and the book club meeting. If your whole club is interested and all able to commit to a specific performance I can try and work in a group discount. Otherwise, the use of the promo code BOOKCLUB will let us know you are attending the discussion after the show. And of course, everyone is welcome to the book club individually.

Lastly, if you don’t already have a copy Virginia Woolf’s Orlando, you can pick it up from your local library branch<http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/>, free online<https://www.goodreads.com/ebooks/download/18839.Orlando>, through Penguin Books with 20% off using code SOULPEPPER<https://penguinshop.ca/collections/soulpepper-book-club>, or through Kobo<https://www.kobo.com/ca/en/audiobook/orlando-68> for the audio book.

It will be great to see this iconic Woolf book on stage, and it would be great to see you there! I’d really appreciate your help in spreading the word in person and on social media to other book lovers you know as we hope to continue offering these Soulpepper Book Club meetings for shows adapted from books.

Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions about the Soulpepper Book Club. Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Thank you kindly,
