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. This discount is also available online using the club member coupon code at checkout. All book club meetings take place in our Jittery Joe's café. Here are the clubs we currently host. Please see the calendar for the current book club schedule.
Paperback Book Club
We read books that were best sellers in hardcover and that are newly available as paperbacks. Meets the first Tuesday of every month at 6 pm.
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.
New - Historical Fiction Book Club
We are excited to be hosting a new Historical Fiction bookclub, starting in January 2023. Our focus will be on historical fiction by acclaimed authors like Hilary Mantel, Kristin Hannah, Colson Whitehead, and Maggie O’Farrell. We will also discuss the wonderful books being written by talented local authors like Kaia Alderson and Laura Morelli.
The Historical Fiction bookclub will be replacing the Erudite group, which is being folded into the Booker Bookclub.
Meets the second Monday of each month 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.
