Welcome to the Metro Philadelphia Book Club. This meetup is open to anyone who wants to join in. Most of our meetups will take place at pubs around the city where we will discuss the months selection over drinks and/or dinner. Some of our previous books have been The Road, Boomsday, A Thousand Splendid Suns, Running With Scissors, The Gathering, Then We Came to an End, On The Road and many others. We were mentioned in Philadelphia Magazines "things to do" issue (July, 2009), as a top book club in the city by CBSPhilly in 2013 and the Philly Voice in 2016. Also, in 2016 it was reported that we were the seventh largest active book club in the world. But we do like our cozy pub discussions.
Hope to see you out soon!
Welcome, Philadelphia Book Readers!
