What we're about

A book club for men. Gay, bi, and a few straight men too; all who enjoy reading non-fiction books and discussing them together once-a-month.

In the news: Local Book Club Celebrates 3 Years

Our book club reads a new book every 4 weeks and meets in-person around Columbia Heights (One stop up from NorthEast Minneapolis.)

You are an ideal book club member if you enjoy:

  • reading a variety of non-fiction topics
  • meeting other men to dialogue and have intellectual discussions,
  • enjoy a guided monthly book discussion

The group was started by Paul C. with a goal to connect in a low-key environment with more men who all share a love of books. Striving to make a group that's welcoming and accepting of men who are at a variety of stages in their life.
We are a safe, welcoming place; so feel free to come and talk about books.

The group pulls books that cover the non-fiction spectrum: Biography/Memoir, Economics/Money, Food/Diet/Health, History, Philosophy, Psychology, Science, Sociology, Self-Help, True-Crime.

Discussion: Waste + Environmental Policy book "Secondhand" with guided questions

***

"Minter tells stories and offers insight suffused with legitimacy, pragmatism, and optimism." - Science
In Secondhand: Travels in the New Global Garage Sale, journalist Adam Minter takes us on an unexpected adventure into the often-hidden, multibillion-dollar industry of reuse: thrift stores in the American Southwest to vintage shops in Tokyo, flea markets in Southeast Asia to used-goods enterprises in Ghana, and more. Along the way, Minter meets the fascinating people who handle—and profit from—our rising tide of discarded stuff, and asks a pressing question: In a world that craves shiny and new, is there room for it all?
