Literary Fiction Book Club

The Literary Fiction Book Club has been meeting at Towne since the mid-2010s and is led by longtime Towne customer Kathy. The Literary Fiction Book Club reads exclusively fiction but across a variety of subgenres and most of the club’s selections have won prestigious literary awards and some have been New York Times and Indie Bestsellers. Selections are voted on by members of the group as a whole.
