We have several in-house book discussion groups that are free and open to the public. Our only request is for you to support our ongoing efforts by purchasing your book through us, usually at a 15% book club discount.
Registration is not necessary. Just bring yourself. Heck, bring snacks and maybe a friend or two! The most important thing is to bring an open mind and get ready for some insightful discussions.

A Walking Book Discussion!
Come exercise your mind and body with us as we take our discussion outdoors!
We meet every Saturday morning at 8:30am and discuss stories we've read in The Art of the Story: An International Anthology of Contemporary Short Stories while walking around downtown Veteran's Memorial Park. We read the short stories in sequence (one a week) and cover approximately 1.5 miles during our discussion.
No need to register. Just swing by and pick up a copy of the book, then show up on Saturdays!

The Battle of Perryville lasted just one day yet produced nearly eight thousand combined casualties and losses, and some say nary a victor.
