Book Clubs at Towne Book Center

We’re so excited you’re interested in our book clubs! We have 9 book clubs that meet every month here at Towne that discuss a variety of books (always in paperback with at 15% discount to keep cost to members as low as we can) across many different genres. If you don’t see a club below that fits your interests, let us know! We’re always happy to have customer led book clubs at the store – almost half our clubs are run by our customers!

Towne Book Center (TBC) Book Club

Also known as “THE” Book Club, and “The Original” Book Club, the TBC Book Club has been meeting since our Trappe days, starting over 14 years ago! Long time staff member Mary is a member of this book club and longtime customers refer to the book club as “Mary’s Book Club.” They read a variety of fiction and nonfiction books across many genres, and most of their selections have been New York Times and Indie Bestsellers. The members of the book club all submit books to be voted on by the group as a whole to determine reading selections and the group averages 20 people per meeting. The TBC Book Club also frequently hosts the authors of some of their selections.

TBC Book Club meets on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 7pm.

YA (Young Adult) for All Book Club

The YA for All Book Club started in the summer of 2019 and is led by our two YA enthusiasts on staff, Anna and Marielle. The YA for All Book Club reads books exclusively from our young adult section and choose mostly fiction works across a variety of subgenres. Most of the selections are by lesser known authors, but bestsellers have also been included in month’s past. Book selections are done collaboratively within the book club.
