Boswell-Run Book Clubs

Covid-19: All in-store and Cafe Hollander book club in-person meetings are cancelled through May 31. We are working to move at least some of our in-store book clubs online. While we work out the kinks, we'll be limiting attendance to existing attendees, but hope to open these up to newcomers soon.

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 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 five in-store book clubs ran by talented booksellers. They are the In-Store Literary book club, Sci-Fi book club, Books and Beer book club, the Mystery book club, and the Adults Love YA 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 - meeting 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 via Zoom

Mystery Book Club: meets every 4th Monday at 7 pm at Boswell. This group is currently not meeting virtually.

Adults Love YA Book Club: hoping to start on the lst Monday at 7 pm at Boswell. Still a work in progress.
