Grown-Up Book Club

Grown-Up Book Club graphic

Our Grown-Up Book Club is a non-judgemental, no-guilt book group that meets monthly (usually in the evening of the Wednesday or Thursday of the 3rd week), and we read a wide variety of titles... everything from historical fiction to thrillers, mysteries to realistic fiction!  

We select books a few at a time, and work collaboratively to identify titles that are of interest to a majority of the members - our conversations are thoughtful, interesting and engaging, but we make sure we take the time to enjoy ourselves and each other.  

If you think this sounds like something YOU would like to try, please don't hesitate to jump in... we'd love to have you join us for a month or a year, whatever your schedule or interests permit!  We have a group Facebook page here, and we will continue to list our events on the calendar and the selected books below.
