What we're about

ORIGINS: I’m sure you’ve read a book, finished it, and said to yourself, “Wow, that was great! I wish I could talk with someone about it, though.” Well, look no further!

My name is Mark, and like you, I’ve had a love of reading for the longest time. Often I’ll read a story and marvel at its story and writing, and wish I had someone to discuss it with.

This lead me to search out book clubs in Taunton here on Meetup. I was shocked, however, when I learned the closest book club meetings were in Plainville. Pretty far for a Tauntonian like me! So, I figured I should get the ball rolling and start a book club here.

ABOUT: The Greater Taunton Book Club will have a format similar to most other book clubs. Members will bring forward a few books they believe would bring lively discussion at each meeting. Members will vote on which book will be read by the group, and have a discussion on it at a later date.

Of course, the club won’t just exclusively be for discussing books. I want everyone to feel free to socialize and discuss things with no fear!

If you’re not from the Taunton area, that’s OK! You can come and get acquainted with this lovely city.

CONTACT: If you have any questions, suggestions, or comments for this club, please don’t hesitate to send me a message or post on the discussion page.

Take care!
