Hunter’s Classics Book Club

Second Tuesday of the Month

A little J.D. Salinger, a little Iris Murdoch, maybe some Olga Tokarczuk — some classics you know, some you may or may not be as familiar with. Hunter makes the selections (he can be controlling that way); all you have to do is read the book and show up.

May 10 –  Go Tell It On the Mountain by James Baldwin

There might be beer — classic, of course.

Beaverdale Book Browsers

Second Thursday of the Month

The OG Book Club, started in 2006 and going strong! What began as a group of strangers has been a testament to the power of books to bring people together. Selections are eclectic and discussion is lively. Food and wine are part of the fun as well. New members welcome.

May 12* – Meet the Author – Rachel Mans McKenny – The Butterfly Effect

*(Joint meeting this month with Books and Bonbons Club)

Urbandale UCC
Book Club

Third Monday of the Month

The Urbandale United Church of Christ Book Club meets every month here at Beaverdale Books. Popular and literary fiction, mystery, non-fiction — a little bit of everything for this group.

Membership is open to all, so if you like good books and good discussion, this could be your group.

Books and Bonbons

Third Thursday of the Month @ 7:00 PM

This smaller, general interest book club keeps its membership low to promote more in-depth and purposeful discussion. Selections encompass a variety of genres.

May 12* – Meet the Author – Rachel Mans McKenny – The Butterfly Effect

*(Joint meeting this month with Book Browsers Club)

Check with us to see if the group is at capacity or not.

Environmental Book Club

Third Saturday of the Month

This book club was formed out of an interest in raising not just awareness, but the “environmental IQ” of our community. Group members represent a range of interests and knowledge about environmental issues and have set out to create and maintain a place where ideas and information can be shared in civil and welcoming ways.

Anyone is welcome to attend, listen, and discuss.

Mystery Book Club

Fourth Tuesday of the Month @ 7:00 pm

This group has been together for over 25 years, moving to Beaverdale Books when Borders Books and Music closed in 2011. New members are always welcome; all you need is a love of mysteries and a burning desire to talk about them with a fun group of folks.

May 24 – The Little Sister by Raymond Chandler

Book clubs receive a 10% discount on their selections.
