Book Clubs at Volumes

Need some new reads? We've got you covered.

Volumes bookclubs are informal - just pick up the book and drop by for the discussion to chat with some friendly people about this month's selection.

No pressure - we're more dorky than intellectual. We just want to drink coffee (or beer, or wine) and hear what you thought!

 

Unless otherwise specified, book clubs meet the Second Thursday of every month!

May Book Clubs Meet June 14th!

Book of the Month: Tyrant: Shakespeare on Politics by Stephen Greenblatt

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club: The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang
