Gibson's Book Club, 2017-2018

Gibson’s supports readers in many ways!  We have an in-store book club (details below), and we also gather and coordinate information for dozens of local book clubs—having their titles in stock, discounting them for members, and keeping a list of past titles for them. We also craft events of special interest to book clubs—for instance, publishers’ nights, in which major publishers send reps to share their best new picks for book clubs, and special receptions for authors whose works have been widely adopted by books clubs (for instance, Sue Miller and Chris Bohjalian). If you’re in a club, please let us know what you’re reading and how to contact you! You can print and fill out this form (.pdf or .docx) to register your book club with us for discounts on your club's reading list and to receive notice of exciting events you might like.

Now, here’s what we’re doing in the bookstore:

Our book club is open to all. We've chosen an eclectic, ambitious list of books for the coming year: join us for every meeting, or deal yourself in as the spirit moves you.

Many of these titles are in paperback, or should be by the time we'll read them, and they will all be discounted 25% from the publisher's price for the following year, whether you join us for meetings or not.

All meetings unless otherwise noted are on the first Monday of the month, and begin at 5:30.
