What we're about

Attention all book lovers! This is a group for bibliophiles of all ages in an around the West Chester area to meet up, grab a drink, and talk about an awesome book (or pick apart a less than awesome book, which can be even more fun!). We have a lot of wide-ranging conversations and generally enjoy anecdotes and observations in addition to serious(?) literary discussion.

Frequently Asked Questions (TM)

What if I didn't like/finish/start the book?
Show up anyway, we're fun people!  Diverse opinions are welcomed, and discussion of the book often winds into discussion of life, the universe, and all manner of other stuff throughout the night.

Will this cost me anything?
Because we're charged a monthly fee to use the Meetup service, we request donations of a buck or two per person per meeting to help keep the lights on.

May 2022: Under the Whispering Door (Klune)

Needs a location


Hi everybody! Our May book is Under the Whispering Door by TJ Klune (https://bookshop.org/a/15022/9781250217349). (Location TBD, but will be in West Chester)

"When a reaper comes to collect Wallace from his own funeral, Wallace begins to suspect he might be dead.

And when Hugo, the owner of a peculiar tea shop, promises to help him cross over, Wallace decides he’s definitely dead.

But even in death he’s not ready to abandon the life he barely lived, so when Wallace is given one week to cross over, he sets about living a lifetime in seven days.

Hilarious, haunting, and kind, Under the Whispering Door is an uplifting story about a life spent at the office and a death spent building a home."

We'll be voting on our summer selections at this meeting, so bring on the suggestions.

Meetup charges us to host the group; contributions of $1-2/meeting to offset this cost are appreciated (Venmo = Matthew-Litke-1, or toss me a couple bucks at the meeting).
