Club Meetings

This club meets at 7:00pm on the first Thursday each month, unless voted upon by group members due to schedule or holiday conflicts. During the COVID-19 pandemic, all book club meetings will be held virtually by Zoom through the end of the Fall semester. Meeting format will be revisited for meetings in January and onward.

A different book or theme is discussed at each meeting, which is held at member’s homes. Titles cover a wide variety of genres, including fiction, nonfiction, literature, chick-lit, young adult, memoir, historical, graphic novels, self-help, and more! Members pick titles about every 8-10 months. Some titles are available as sets from Wichita Public Libraries, meaning that multiple copies are available for book clubs to borrow for all members. Titles available in a set are noted below. Contact Angie Paul for more information.

Each meeting is hosted by a member in her home or other event space, and the hostess provides snacks and beverages (usually wine). Those who wish to volunteer but do not have space to host are invited to co-hostess with another member. This arrangement typically means that one hostess provides the location for the meeting, while the other hostess provides snacks and beverages.
