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. Below are the meeting times and location for the book clubs!
