Hey....hey you...stop scrolling....You are lucky enough to have found the most amazing book club in Minneapolis!

Due to the craziness of work, class, life schedules during the week - this group will meet exclusively on weekend afternoons. We read at least two books a month,  and for each meeting gather an eclectic, fascinating group to debate, discover, and laugh together in only the most tastefully pretentious way. But seriously, you don't need to be a high-brow-literary snob to welcome the opportunity for a rowdy discussion just past the back cover. Sometimes even the books you are not originally interested in reading are able to provoke the most striking thoughts.

Anyway, come as you are and when you want to read the book we've chosen for the month. No pressure and no apologies necessary. We have two meetings a month, one fiction and one non-fiction. Books will be decided by democratic vote and conversations will be rich, flowing, funny, thoughtful, and aided by snacks. Lots of snacks.

Everyone is welcome!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
