October's Book Club Selections
Some of the selections are from book clubs that we hold at the store, some are from other local book clubs which have registered with our store, and some are from national book clubs. More details can be found about each below. Selections are updated roughly once per month.

If you would like to register your book club with the store, or have an idea for a book club that would meet at the store, please email us at

Friday Morning Fiction Book Club

As the title suggests, this new book club will focus in on the adult fiction genre. Hosted by local writer Kyra Wilson Cook, the group will meet on the first Friday mornings of each month, and croissants will be provided free of charge!

Young Adult Book Club

Young adult books are inspiring, emotional, transformational, and more. The genre has greatly expanded in the past 10 years, and many YA books are enjoyed by people of all ages, making its title almost a misnomer. They're so infectious that we wanted to start a book club specifically for them!

Led by our booksellers Daphne and Olivia, the Young Adult Book Club will meet periodically at the bookstore to discuss a work of young adult fiction.
Third Meeting!!!
This month we are partnering with ABRHS to bring meetings to the high school. Book discussions will take place during lunch periods in early November, days TBD.

FanGraphs Book Club

Store owner Paul Swydan used to write for the baseball analysis website FanGraphs, and its sister site, The Hardball Times. So, this book club combines his two loves -- books and baseball! Luckily, there are lots of people who love both, so why not form a book club to talk about them? There are so many fabulous baseball books out there, and we are going to talk about as many of them as possible. We will talk about them not at the bookstore, but in live chats on, as well as our Facebook group.

When possible, we'll try to recruit the author(s) to participate in the live chats with us, because the only thing more fun than talking about a book is getting to talk to the author about their book.
