As soon as we opened our doors, we had customers asking about book clubs. There are already dozens of wonderful, well-established book clubs in the Golden Isles, but people were asking for something a little different: clubs with more focus on the books, and maybe a little professional help in book selection.
All club titles are offered at a 20% discount to members. While this program is still a work-in-progress, here are the clubs we currently host.
Booker Book Club
We read books that have appeared on the Booker Prize long list. Some of these books are a little off-beat, but they usually inspire a lively conversation. Meets the fourth Tuesday of every month at 6 pm.
Erudite Book Club
This is a spin-off of the Booker Book Club. We read books that are considered more challenging, because of their unusual structure or language. Meets quarterly, on Monday at 6 pm.
Baking Book Club
This group meets for events like the Holiday Cookie Swap and the Bake Sale for Children’s Literacy. Most members are excited to try cooking from the recommended great baking cookbooks, classic and new, but we are also happy to have bakers use their own recipes. Meets for events. Watch calendar for updates.
Paperback Book Club
We read books that were best sellers in hard cover and that are newly available as paperbacks. Meets the first Tuesday of every month at 6 pm.
We support all local book clubs by ensuring we have the titles in stock, and offer a 20% discount on all club selections. All we need is a list of your club name, monthly selections and contact information. Be sure to keep us posted on new selections by sending us an email.
We can also assist your group with suggestions for upcoming selections, or even host your group at the store.
