Towne Book Club, formerly Towne 2.0 and the Nonfiction Book Club, was the first to join our new selection of book clubs in early 2019 and this group used to read exclusively nonfiction, but now read across all genres, a majority of them NYT and Indie Bestsellers! Towne Book Club is led by bookseller Athena and she would love for you to stop by and join in on their discussions!
Towne Book Club meets on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 7pm.
