Start a Book Club

 

Bookworks seeks to partner with more book clubs and literary and special interest groups. All book clubs and its members receive 10% off book club purchases already at Bookworks, and with prior notice, we can promote your meetings and reading selections in our email and front counter newsletters and on our website. With even more advance planning, we hope to be able to pair touring authors with book clubs and include book club members in planning our children's and adult events.

In our store, we have a book club area where we display books that book clubs are reading or titles we'd recommend for book clubs. A few book clubs already meet in our store--The Bookworks Book Club meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm, and the Vamos a Leer Book Group meets the first Monday of every month at 5 pm to discuss young adult literature with Latino themes.

We are especially interested in forming a kids' book club for ages 7-12 and a young adult group for ages 12-18. Other topics and genres of interest that would be a good fit for our store and its events program include history, New Mexicana, spirituality, metaphysics, memoir, and new fiction and non-fiction titles.

If you or someone you know are interested in starting a book club in collaboration with Bookworks or one that meets at our store, please email a brief proposal including titles of interest, membership information, and meeting time and place to Amanda Sutton, Events and Marketing Manager, at events@bkwrks.com.
