Book Clubs

There are those who read alone and those who, after reading alone, seek out others who have also been reading alone to talk about what they've been reading. Some of those people gather with food and wine at the homes of friends or in public places, in order to talk about what they read. Some give themselves names. Generally, though, they are known as "book clubs."

We offer registered book clubs dedicated shelf space for their selected titles as well as a 10% discount to members who buy their books from us. The shelves are at the front of the store where others may discover new books, too, as a result of seeing what book clubs are reading. If your book club is reading, or has read, a title by a visiting author, we can sometimes connect your group for a private pre-event discussion with the author. If you're interested in registering your book club, please call or e-mail bookclubs@boswellbooks.com.

In addition to supporting book clubs, Boswell is home to three in-store book clubs ran by talented booksellers. They are the In-Store Literary book club, Sci-Fi book club, and the Mystery book club. These clubs are free, open to the public, and a great way to meet literary like-minded individuals. Below are the meeting times and location for the book clubs!

In-Store Lit Book Club: generally meets every 1st Monday at 7 pm at Boswell. 

Sci-Fi Book Club: meets every 2nd Monday at 7 pm at Boswell. 

Mystery Book Club: meets every 4th Monday at 7 pm at Boswell.
