One of the largest and most active Chicago book groups. If you love discussing interesting books in a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction categories (including: psychology, history, memoir, politics, personal growth, economics, nature and beyond), sign up now!

Local authors are invited to speak about their books and readers are invited to review or tell something briefly about a book they are reading. There will be time for open and private discussions and interactions.

We will be meeting at the Roots Room which is an artist development center with a kind of cabaret atmosphere. A donation of $3 is requested and will include your choice of a soft drink as a thank you. There is food available from Merla's Kitchen (Filipino cuisine) and a Subway sandwich store around the corner. BYOB if you want wine or beer.

We hope to provide an entertaining and interactive vibe that encourages the sharing of ideas.
