How do I get my book club box?

Book boxes can be picked up during the monthly book club meeting and afterward at the bookstore during normal hours.

How do you select the books?

We’ll make the first few selections. Then, group will select one of two options for future months. Our intent is to provide book choices that have received praise from critics and reviewers, plus a little something extra when possible — like autographed copies.

If I purchase a multiple-month membership but my situation changes, can I get a refund?

We know life throws curve balls. While we hope you will be able to enjoy the full experience you choose, you can change or cancel your membership with advance notice. Any remaining months in the membership will be refunded.
