What we're about

Do enjoy reading a wide variety of books? Do you like good conversation? Then you're at the right place. We are based in Denver, but until Covid-19 is in the rear view mirror, our book clubs will be virtual, therefore non-locals are welcome to attend.

A few basics of book club:

1. Read the book or as much of it as you can prior to book club

2. Your thoughts and opinions are welcome during book club. The hosts will have discussion prompts/our own insights from the book as well to help conversation flow

3. Attendance for book clubs will be capped at six people. **Note - if you end up on the waitlist for a book club you really want to attend, message the host to see if we can increase the attendee list**

4. There is a zero tolerance policy for no shows at book club. Life happens, just update your RSVP before the book club. No shows will be removed from the group.

5. Have a book recommendation? Tell us!

Happy reading!

The Four Tendencies - The Indispensable Personality Profiles - by Gretchen Rubin

Are you an upholder, questioner, obliger, or rebel? The answer is a window into your personality that's much more reliable than random Facebook quizzes. Gretchen Rubin teaches you how to play to your strengths and work with your weaknesses, so you can make the changes you want (and let's be real, need) in your life.

Beartown - A Novel - by Fredrik Backman

Online event

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove returns with a dazzling, profound novel about a small town with a big dream—and the price required to make it come true. People say Beartown is finished. A tiny community nestled deep in the forest, it is slowly losing ground to the ever encroaching trees. But down by the lake stands an old ice rink, built generations ago by the working men who founded this town. And in that ice rink is the reason people in Beartown believe tomorrow will be better than today. Their junior ice hockey team is about to compete in the national semi-finals, and they actually have a shot at winning. All the hopes and dreams of this place now rest on the shoulders of a handful of teenage boys. Being responsible for the hopes of an entire town is a heavy burden, and the semi-final match is the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through all of Beartown, leaving no resident unaffected.

The Warmth of Other Suns - Isabel Wilkerson

Location visible to members

I will add a link to the virtual space closer to the event! For Black History Month we’ll be reading The Warmth of Other Suns: In The Warmth of Other Suns, Isabel Wilkerson draws on ten years of research and over 1,500 interviews to tell the remarkable story of America’s Great Migration—the mass exodus of Southern Black men, women, and children to Northern cities from 1915 to 1970. It is a story whose real significance has until now been largely overlooked and poorly understood.
