What we're about

Let's mix up Cincinnati's bookshelves! This is a book club for anyone interested in discovering new literature genres or digging deeper into their favorites. This group is for those who want to participate in a lively book discussion where we can explore themes, characters, and plots.

Meetings capped at 12 so we can keep discussions dynamic, but not overwhelmed. Every month we will meet to read and discuss a book of a different genre: sci fi, history, historical fiction, historical science fiction (?), romance, science, memoirs, classics, comics... Any genre has a chance to be chosen once per year. Meetings held the third Tuesday of every month.

So we can keep 2 months ahead of the game, November and December meetings will be special! In November, a randomly chosen member will be able to select January’s genre AND title. Likewise for December’s meeting selection for February (has to be another genre though). December meetings will also instead be a BOOK SWAP and an opportunity to choose the rest of our upcoming year's genres. Make suggestions and then we'll draw from a hat! See the Pages section for more info on how we will select the titles for the rest of the year.
