A Reader's Loft Book Club
A Reader's Loft book group has been meeting monthly since 2011, and over the years we've covered a lot of ground. During our time together we have met a handful of authors and have made many many friends. This book club is special because we all contribute to the list and welcome fiction, classics, nonfiction, young adult, sci-fi, and mystery and more. Of course, like any good book club, we tend to lean toward books that are well written, tell a great story, and invite deeper social awarenss. But that doesn't me we are all serious all the time. We do make it a point to sprinkle in books that are light, fun and easy to digest. Take a look at the list and join us for all or one reads. We promise to make room in the circle for you and a friend.
