Towne Book Center & Cafe Book Club

This is the original book club, in existence practically since the day the store opened its doors 25 years ago! The TBC&C Book Club typically reads literary and contemporary fiction with a few forays into popular nonfiction and former bestsellers. Frequently the group reads books by local authors and host the authors as part of the discussion! The TBC&C Book Club is a very comfortable and encouraging group and they welcome any and all opinions on the books they read each month. Each meeting is typcially attended by 20 to 30 people of various ages.

Former selections include Life of Pi by Yann Martel; The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger; The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini; Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell

Classics Book Club

The Classics Book Club reads just what the name would suggest - the classics! Anything from Austen to Zola is included in the repertoire and if you miss your favorite literature class from high school or college and you're looking for a group of like-minded individuals, this is the group for you!

Literary Fiction Book Club
