How it works.

Open to anyone anywhere in the world, the Armchair Travel Bookclub combines the best of all of our favorite activities - reading fiction and non-fiction books that take us places, forming friendships while we discuss, and then traveling to, from, and maybe even with those new friends to some of those places we've been reading about.

We read a new book every two months. A series of meet-ups will be scheduled throughout the months: some in-person in different cities, some virtually for everyone to attend.

Bonus! As this book club is officially run by the indie bookstore River Dog Book Co., if you choose to purchase the book through RDBC, you'll get some extra gifts that month! It could be a piece of art related to the story, a recipe for a dish from the book's location, or even something special from the author for just this club.

WARNING: This book club may lead to discovering new favorite books, making new friends, and traveling to places (literally or figuratively) you never thought you'd go to before.
