We're the Meetup home for book clubs at the pub, game night, crafts, and other assorted fun sponsored by Stratford Library!

We host Books on Tap one Tuesday a month from 7-8:30 at Sitting Duck Tavern, where we gather for drinks and casual conversation in a relaxed atmosphere. Sitting Duck has a great vibe to it with an upstairs loft where we meet, as well as awesome food and drinks including local craft brews. We choose books from across all genres, from graphic novels to hilarious memoirs, as long as they aren't too thick and we can reasonably finish them in a month (no Infinite Jest!). In the past we've read stuff by David Sedaris, Allie Brosh, Amy Poehler, Jonathan Safran Foer, Trevor Noah, etc. Just like our books, our members are a diverse bunch from all ages and backgrounds, and we're very welcoming and open to everyone who'd like to join us. :)

We also offer events for our under-40 crowd, including games, trivia, and crafts that are held primarily at Stratford Library. While we do note an age range for those activities, please don't let it keep you from joining us if you'd like to participate! We're always happy to welcome new faces.
