What we're about

Welcome to Silver Lake Book Club!

WHAT WE DO: We meet the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30 pm to discuss an awesome book over drinks.

WHO SHOULD JOIN: People who love to read + imbibe + make attempts at intelligent literary conversations. On average, most members are ages 25-45, but ALL age groups are welcome, provided you are 21+ (because most of our Meetups take place at a bar). You don’t have to live in Silver Lake to attend!

WHO’S HOSTING: We’re Jim & Krista. If you’ve been coming to the club for a long time, you probably remember the former hosts, Olivia and Elise. We took it over from them in 2019, and we’re excited to keep this club going!

HOW IT WORKS: The Thursday after each Meetup, we’ll post a poll for you all to vote on the book for an upcoming month. You guys have until that Sunday at 12 am to vote! That Monday, we’ll officially announce the selection. [Have a book you’d like to nominate to be a part of the poll? Bring your suggestion in person to the Meetup.]

PRETTY PLEASE NOTE: There are 200+ members in this group, and for now, we’re capping the attendees to 15 for each event (because, er, any larger than that and shit gets complicated), so if you RSVP and cannot make it, we ask that you give the group 24 hours’ notice so that someone else can have your spot.

OTHER STUFF: If you want to share something for the whole group to see (like, “Hey, where can I find a cheap copy of this month’s book?”), post a comment. If you have a question or comment just for the hosts, message Krista directly for a speedier reply.

Hope to see you all there :)
