The Book Thieves Book Club

We are a lively group of bibliophiles who enjoy eating, drinking (21+) and, most importantly, talking about books together. We are about as relaxed a group as they come, so don’t be intimidated. You are welcome to drop in to chat about a book that especially interests you, or join us for the whole season! 

We read eight books per year, and meet for round table discussions on the first Thursday of the month, 7 – 8 pm, except October (see our calendar below). On the first Thursday of October, we meet to select our slate of books for the upcoming year. We read a mixture of fiction and nonfiction, with a goal of reading a diverse group of books each year (style, author, & genre).

When we’re not social distancing, we gather at Writers & Books on University Ave. Book Thieves are invited to bring a dish, snack, or drink to share, and of course, an enthusiasm for all things literary! Ampersand, Writers & Books’ indie bookstore, stocks the titles we choose, and makes them available at a 15% discount. 


Next virtual meeting: October 7, 2021 - Book Picking for 2022

 Book club selections are always 15% off
