For some time The Book Club, Lagos typically held monthly book review meetings in various locations across Lagos. However, several members relocated, reducing participation. The Book Club leaned towards information technology and social media to allow participation by members in the diaspora, effectively opening a window for non Lagos residents to still participate.
