DO YOU LOVE TO READ? DO YOU LOVE TO TALK ABOUT THE BOOKS YOU'VE READ?
If so, then we'd love to have you become a member of The Bookies!
We are a diverse group comprised of young, in between, old, male, and female members. Our meetings are held once a month (the third Monday) at Panera Bread, Turkey Creek, in West Knoxville.
At each meeting we discuss our current selection and pick the next book for the upcoming month. Even if you do not get a chance to read or complete the book, do not hesitate to come and enjoy the discussion.
Most importantly, we have fun!
There is no membership fee and our only requirement is to have fun meeting new people while discussing our current book selection. We do not host online discussions of our selections.
Welcome, Knoxville Book Readers!
