WEKU Book Club

Current Selection:

Bring Suggestions - Annual Meeting to select 2018 Books

Next Meeting

December 12

How it Works

Imagine an eclectic mix of people coming together for good food and stimulating conversation about a recently published book. That's the WEKU Book Club experience.

Each month, we'll announce the next Book Club selection. Then you can purchase a copy at Joseph-Beth and receive a 10% discount just by mentioning WEKU. Simply read the book and come to the next Book Club meeting.

After enjoying delicious food, we'll settle in for an hour of discussion about the story, its characters, the author, and more. The Club will be led by members of the WEKU staff, invited guests and, occasionally, by the author of the selected book. It's a wonderful evening of food, companionship and conversation you won't want to miss!
