Nonfiction Book Club

Nonfiction Book Club

The Nonfiction Book Club was the first to join our new selection of book clubs in early 2019 and this group reads exclusively nonfiction, but across many genres. From history and science to nature and biography, they read it all! The Nonfiction Book Club is led by Towne (assistant) manager Sarah and she would love for you to stop by and join in on their discussions!

Nonfiction Book Club meets on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 7pm.
