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 Two Days Gone by Randall Silvis, If the Creek Don't Rise by Leah Weiss, The Storied Life of AJ Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin and A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
