BOOK CLUBS


Book Clubs

We say "usually will meet" for all the book clubs as they are subject to being moved to a different date. We always try to let everyone know early enough, so keep your eye on this page, our Facebook page, and any emails that come your way from us! All excited readers are always invited to join us! We will discuss the entire book in book club. There are also light refreshments. Cupboard Maker Books provides bottled water and a snack but feel free to bring your own goodie to share!  To read questions from previous book clubs, please visit Michelle's Blog.

We always have open seats for anyone who wants to join us!

Upcoming book clubs will be held in our entire event area, which has recently been expanded significantly, and we will arrange tables for appropriate social distancing.
