It is fun to read a book and then discuss it with others.  You get more out of the book, learn from others' interpretations, and enjoy some camaraderie with other readers.  That's why book clubs are so popular: they're social, intellectual, and cultural. 

Take a look at the full description of our current book clubs and discussion groups below. All of our discussion groups currently meet hybrid -- you can join us in the store or via Zoom, however you are most comfortable.

All the groups

 

 

Would you like to start another book discussion group?  Do you have a current book club looking for a host location?  Or do you just want some buying perks based on 10 or more copies of the registered book? Let us know.


Upcoming Discussions

Berry Good Books: When We Cease to Understand the World
Thursday, October 20, 7:00PM
~3rd Thursdays, In-person and Zoom~
You already love our booksellers' recommendations: what could be better than a chance to come back after you've read what they recommend to talk about it? That's the idea behind our newest monthly book club, Berry Good Books. Every month, a different Loganberry Bookseller will recommend a favorite book and lead a discussion with community members!

This month, Bookseller Miesha will be discussing WHEN WE CEASE TO UNDERSTAND THE WORLD by Benjamin Labatut!

A fast-paced, mind-expanding literary work about scientific discovery, ethics and the unsettled distinction between genius and madness.

Albert Einstein opens a letter sent to him from the Eastern Front of World War I. Inside, he finds the first exact solution to the equations of general relativity, unaware that it contains a monster that could destroy his life's work.

The great mathematician Alexander Grothendieck tunnels so deeply into abstraction that he tries to cut all ties with the world, terrified of the horror his discoveries might cause.

Erwin Schrödinger and Werner Heisenberg battle over the soul of physics after creating two equivalent yet opposed versions of quantum mechanics. Their fight will tear the very fabric of reality, revealing a world stranger than they could have ever imagined.

Using extraordinary, epoch-defining moments from the history of science, Benjamín Labatut plunges us into exhilarating territory between fact and fiction, progress and destruction, genius and madness.

Naturalist's Notebook

~3rd Sundays, quarterly, 1-3pm~

There is just so much good and important writing out there in the world of naturalists -- from environmental classics such as Rachel Carson's Silent Spring to even current fiction such as Barbara Kingsolver's Flight Behavior. How exciting to get a group together to read and discuss these old and new ideas.  We read books about climate change, birding, gardening, fracking, agriculture and community, food -- anything that might touch on our natural world in a broad sense.  Each book discussion is co-lead by bookseller Freddy Scott and an invited guest with either a professional or passionate interest in the subject. 

 

Armchair (Time) Travelers Club

~Fourth Monday - every other month, beginning February 28~

Join bookseller Toni for an exploration of the world across time in our travel & history book club! Armchair (Time) Travelers Club reads current and classic travel, adventure, and world history. NEW SCHEDULE: The club meets MONTHLY on the 4th Sunday at 4 pm.

Your Book Club Group

We'd love to add your existing book club to this list, or to start a new one.  We'll even help you find more readers to make the discussions lively (if you are so interested). There are book discounts available (10% off for registered titles; 20% off for purchases of 10+ copies), and the (optional) use of our cozy LitArts room for discussions. Please inquire

Book of the Month Club

Do you want new book recommendations, without the group discussion?  Loganberry's Book of the Month Club delivers just that.  Tell us what you generally like, and we'll set you up with good new reads along those lines, one per month as long as you're subscribed.  Book of the Month Club is also an excellent gift for friends and family. Learn more about Book of the Month Club
