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!

July Book Clubs Meet August 9th!

Book of the Month: Tin Man by Sarah Winman

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club: The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal
