The Pleasure Point Murder Club 

A monthly gathering for people who can’t get enough of whodunit. Calling all cozy fanatics, murderinos, Sherlockians, Jackson Brodie stans--if you love mysteries and thrillers, we’d love to have you join us. We’re gathering outdoors at the New Bohemia Brewing Company for the moment, and will likely be back on Zoom for the winter. One day we look forward to meeting in the store! Pleasure Point Murder Club members get 20% off all current PP Murder Club picks.


The Bonfire Book Club

Coming this August/September/October, The Bonfire Book CLub is a limited run book group that meets at Twin Lakes beach to discuss nature-centric books. Our October pick (10/14, 6:30 pm) is Elizabeth Gilbert's The Signature of All Things. Contact us if you'd like to be included on the mailing list.


The Booker Book Group

The historically UK/Commonwealth-based Booker Prize is a literary prize that now recognizes all fiction published in English. Our new Booker-inspired book club will start with some of the 2021 short listed books then dip back into past winners based on members' interests. We'll start with Richard Powers's Bewilderment in late October/early November. Contact us if you're interested in being a part of this!


Build-Your-Own Book Club 

What’s your dream book club? Do you want to see what’s happening in YA fiction? Get together with like-minded folks to discuss social and political issues? Read more genre fiction by non-white authors? Pitch us your book club idea. We will play matchmaker to help you find the perfect book group.
