What we're about

BCD Homepage


BCD Facebook page


Founded in 1957, The Book Club of Detroit, is an association of Detroit-area bibliophiles who assemble periodically for the purpose of stimulating a mutual interest in books, manuscripts, and prints, specifically those aspects concerned with collecting, bibliography, design, production, conservation, and preparation.

Our chief aims are to further the interests of book collectors and to promote an understanding and appreciation of fine books and printing. We are doctors, lawyers, teachers, students, retirees, librarians, antiquarians, artists, writers, publishers, book dealers, and people from all walks of life. The one thing we have in common is we all share a love of books and the printed page.

Together we are the Book Club of Detroit, a group of individuals dedicated to celebrating and preserving the excellence of the written word in all matters related to books. We meet most months from March through December to enjoy a variety of programs featuring authors, book collecting experts, and special guests. Our venues include the homes of private collectors, libraries, rare book rooms, special exhibitions, book shops, and other unique places.

We regularly conduct events in conjunction with other book-related groups and have co-sponsored events with The Detroit Public Library Friends Foundation, The Historical Society of Michigan, The Burton Historical Collection, Wayne State University and WSU Press, The William L. Clements Library, The Detroit Historical Society, The Detroit Institute of Arts, College for Creative Studies, The Scarab Club, University of Michigan Libraries, the Detroit Drunken Historical Society, and others.

Our events are always lively, imaginative, and informative. The Book Club of Detroit is a member of the prestigious Fellowship of American Bibliophilic Societies (FABS), which comprises book clubs around the United States. We also publish a newsletter called Speaking of Books and a membership directory, both of which are delivered to all members at no extra charge.

All members are encouraged to submit reviews and articles for our publications, or to host or arrange an event. We urge you to join with us and we promise you will be enriched and rewarded.
