Boswell-Run Book Clubs

Boswell is home to four in-store book clubs run by talented booksellers. They are the In-Store Literary book club, Sci-Fi book club, the Books and Beer book club (adventurous and entertaining fiction, often with a speculative twist), and the Romance book club. These clubs are free, open to the public, and a great way to meet literary like-minded individuals. The Boswell Mystery Club is now meeting on its own. Below are the meeting times and location for the book clubs!

In-Store Lit Book Club: meets every 1st Monday at 7 pm -  via Zoom 

Sci-Fi Book Club: meets every 2nd Monday at 7 pm - meeting via Zoom

Books and Beer Book Club: meets every 3rd Monday at 7 pm  - meeting at Cafe Hollander on Downer

Romance Book Club meets every 4th Monday at 7 pm - meeting via Zoom

Alas, we no longer have a Boswell-run mystery group.
