Boswell-Run Book Clubs

Covid-19: All in-store and Cafe Hollander book club in-person meetings are virtual. We have moved three in-store book clubs online. If you are interested in attending, please click on the invite link.

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
