Book Clubs


Mystery Lovers Bookshop hosts the following book clubs that meet regularly at the shop.  Due to the popularity of the book clubs, we recently added two more that meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 2pm and 7pm.  The other groups have met in the store for ten years or more!  All groups welcome new members.

If you’re interested in receiving more information on book clubs, please  email us prior to attending your first meeting so we can introduce you to the members and the meeting date and times can be confirmed, occastionaly the date or times are adjusted due to holidays, etc.
