About the East Bay Book Club

The East Bay Book Club is a very dynamic group of individuals who share one thing in common: an enthusiasm for books. Each month, members read a particular book, chosen by the whole group or by the Organizer, and meet to share observations, insights, and personal thoughts about it. Meetings are devoted to various genres, both contemporary and classic.

The club's members represent a variety of backgrounds and literary tastes, bringing wonderful diversity to each book discussion. The East Bay Book Club thrives on both the celebration of literature and the comraderie of its readers. More importantly, the club values the ideas of its members, allowing everyone a chance to suggest books and other ideas for making this club a lively group to participate in.

Since its inception in June 2007, the East Bay Book Club has inspired new and ongoing interest in reading. The club reads everything from historical fiction and literary works to thrillers and nonfiction. Thanks to its members, the club continues to be an engaging book interest group, discussion forum, and social club all rolled into one. The mission of the East Bay Book Club is simple: provide an opportunity to explore the excitement of literature, one of humankind's oldest forms of leisure, and to meet like-minded people along the way.

Reading Schedule

All book discussion meetings for a single club year (September through June) are announced before the start of the year. Please refer to the complete list of current and upcoming meetups to know the books and dates for each meeting. You are encouraged to plan in advance your readings of books that interest you, instead of waiting for email announcements of each meeting.
