Bring Your Own Book Club: B.Y.O.B.


B.Y.O.B.: A New Type of Book Club

Meets the 1st Thursday of each month at 7 PM

B.Y.O.B. is different from your traditional book club

1. You pick what you read.

Unlike most book clubs where everyone reads the same thing, at B.Y.O.B. you pick the titles you want to read. Each month, we will choose a new theme (mystery, banned books, bestsellers, etc.) and then YOU choose a title to read and discuss. It may get a little chaotic, but it should be fun times, especially since…

2. It’s held in local bars and wineries.

Instead of meeting at the same place every month, we will rotate through various local establishments based on the club’s preferences. Which means we will be discussing a bunch of books each month over food and drink (alcoholic or non-B.Y.O.B. is all about choices!) from local places you know and love.

Join us the at 7 on the 1st Thursday of each month for a great conversation about books over local food and drinks!

Check here for upcoming dates, themes, locations, and an ongoing reading list. For more information and to register, call 330-343-6123 or email Kathryn Green at kgreen@doverlibrary.org.

Where: Schoolhouse Winery in Dover

When: August 6 @ 7 PM

Theme: Biography/Memoir

Join us at the Schoolhouse Winery in Dover to discuss biographies and memoirs. Can’t decide what to read? Ask a librarian! Can’t choose between two or more titles? No problem–just bring them all! No time to read something new? Just come and enjoy the conversation! We’ll meet at 7, grab some food and drink, and then start talking about our most recent reads. Call the library at 330-343-6123 or email Kathryn at kgreen@doverlibrary.org for more information.
