Featured Book Clubs
Online book discussions are conducted via Zoom. Register on the event page to receive the zoom link.
Pageturners: Local participants choose the books to be discussed for the year. For more information, please contact your local library. View the PageTurners Meeting Calendar to find a PageTurners Book Discussion near you. Available for adults and youth!
DoubleBooked: Offering something different from a traditional book club, rather than focus on a single book, we discuss a pairing of books that share similar elements. Our discussions will explore many genres and perspectives and reward the more adventurous among us. For adults.
Great Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) Book Club: We will focus our reading on the innovative and inspiring ways great BIPOC writers are creating great literature while also demonstrating that foundational issues like race, gender, power, and class can look very different when seen from a BIPOC perspective. For adults.
Queer and Pleasant Strangers Book Club: LGBTQIA+ book club to discuss queer books and socialize with other community members. For adults.
Noname Book Club: Dedicated to uplifting the voices of people of color and fulfilling their motto of promoting "reading material for the homies", Noname Book Club highlights two titles each month written by authors of color. Check out the monthly picks below or visit the Noname Book Club Overdrive page.
