Not a Book Club

Not a Book Club (Zoom)

The next best thing to reading a good book is talking about it with our fellow readers. Join us online the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. for an informal book discussion. We’re "Not a Book Club," so there’s no assigned reading and no pressure. Just grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, and let’s talk books! Register here or call 919.245.2525 for more details.

Page Turners Book Club (Seymour Center in Chapel Hill)

Join us the 3rd Friday of the month from 10-11a.m. at the Seymour Center in Chapel Hill. The book club is free, open to the public and no registration required. Call Maureen at 919.245.2535 or email if you have any questions.
