Book Clubs!

Email the store to join any or all of these book clubs and to get meeting directions.

Welcome!

Our book clubs are just like the store: friendly, fun, maybe a little odd, but always full of heartfelt connection fostered by our mutual love or reading and the wish to get to know the world and each other by talking about books!

Purchase of book from Fountain either in paper, ebook, or audio is required for all book clubs.

All of our book clubs are accepting members and are currently meeting virtually.

Information about what each club is currently reading can be found on our events calendar.
