Book Clubs!

To join a book club, follow the instructions below the listings!

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 the 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.

How to join:

  1. Purchase the book from Fountain in any format
  2. Fill out the form below and agree to the Code of Conduct and Patronage Agreement
  3. Wait for your emailed greeting and Zoom link (usually between 2-5 days before the meeting)
  4. Join the book club on the date provided
  5. Have fun!!!!

The biggest thing to remember is that you can show up to just one meeting, bounce around to different clubs if you want. You don't have to commit to one type of club meeting monthly from now to eternity.
