About our gift subscriptions:
While we do offer virtual subscriptions and audiobook subscriptions, our gift subscriptions are only available in our physical book membership. If you’re not sure whether your gift recipient would prefer fiction or non-fiction, select “Surprise me!” — they will always be able to change it once they join.
What’s included with the monthly membership:
+ a physical copy of the book of the month (or swap it for something else in our library free of charge!)
+ a pamphlet introducing you to the books and theme
+ a handwritten note from our founder or team member
+ small surprises like themed bookmarks, stickers, or art prints
+ access to the FBC online community on Mighty Networks for text-based discussions, workshops, and exclusive content
+ login details for our monthly live video chat to connect and dig into the book together
+ login details for exclusive author chats (not guaranteed with every book, but it happens more often than you’d think!)
+ opportunities to suggest and vote on what comes next
+ and we’ll donate a portion to social justice organizations across the country!
