What we're about


Welcome to The San Francisco Mind-Benders Book Club!! Reading challenging books since 2013! If you are looking for straightforward novels, easy read books with easy explanations- this is not the book club for you.

The books we select here require extra effort and patience. We read all types of literature, from Classic, Sci-fi, Drama, Graphic Novels, etc. Our books are notoriously difficult, some absurdly long, some are short, but dense and linguistically knotty. But the experience is always rewarding! Your mind will expand to levels you did not expect. Join us, if you are ready to take this challenge! You are welcome to come to the meeting even if you have not finished the book or you if just want to listen to the discussion.

We hope to see you there!!
