For Book Clubs

"When one has read a book, I think there is nothing so nice as discussing it with some one else - even though it sometimes produces rather fierce arguments."

 ― C.S. Lewis 

We can help you pick titles that will incite conversations and send you home with discussion guides full of background information about the book—won't your friends be impressed!

Each fall, we choose a selection of books both fiction and non-fiction that will provoke lively chat and provide food for thought. We have ten copies of each title in our print collection. Book Club Selections 2016
