The Lakewood Book Club is an intimate, member-driven group of open-minded bibliophiles. Our successful and enduring book club results from members’ commitment to read and attend each month as consistently as possible. Club members take turns picking a month’s book and hosting the corresponding meeting. The rotation of a variety of types, such as non-fiction, fiction and classics, is encouraged, and any appropriate genre is welcome. In general, the members view the club as an opportunity to broaden their literary horizons, and thus are open to reading most any title. We have a “you read my book, I’ll read yours” philosophy. However, we do strive to pick books that will be interesting to read and have the potential to touch, inform and inspire us in some way.
We meet on the last Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm (excluding December). We usually meet at Whole Food Market in Belmar, but other locations in or around the Lakewood area can also be used. Come a little early to grab dinner, a snack, or a drink, and then meet in the patio area of the store.
