90,000 readers connected annually! Add your book group.
Looking to start or join a book club? Welcome! We're a book club networking site with listings for local groups, author events, and phone chats. View map of book clubs.
You'll note in our database that a number of listings are for 'reader's circles.' These are a new kind of book group where people attend with whatever they're reading. The only structure is if participants decide to have an 'optional book.' Otherwise, everyone just brings their own books, articles, magazines, and conversation goes from there. The idea is to loosen the usual format so participants can select their own reading and attend even if they're still in the middle of a book. Conversation inevitably covers the books brought and many other subjects as well.
Reader's Circle seeks to renew the spirit of dialogue that animated the coffeehouses of early modern England and the salons of Enlightenment France. Franklin's Junto and the Lyceums of the 19th century also suggest the tone of American life we hope to facilitate.
Unlike some .org’s, which may in fact be for-profit businesses, Reader’s Circle is the real thing. All donations are used to support our mission: to build an inclusive community, the reading public brought together as a body instead of existing merely as an abstraction.
Each year Reader's Circle serves 90,000 inquires for local book clubs in 5 countries. Top cities include: New York City, London, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, San Francisco, San Diego, Boston, Brooklyn, Portland, Cambridge, Minneapolis, Arlington, Houston, Austin, San Jose, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, and Phoenix.
