AfterHours book club

The AfterHours book club meets the second or middle Wednesday of every month at Serendipity Books from 7 to 8:30 pm.

The book club is open to regular clock-work attendees or occasional drop-ins alike. No sign-up is needed, no purchases are necessary, just stop by ready to discuss the latest read, often with tie-in reads to the Washtenaw Reads winning selection, the Midwest Literary Walk, and even high school favorites.

Upcoming meetings:


September 18th, 2019 – ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ by Ken Kesey.  

Rediscover this classic or read it for the first time. No doubt we’ll be chatting about the movie too.

Future dates and reads:

October 16, 2019 – Mardi Link visit. Author of When Evil Came to Good Hart, Isadore’s Secret, and Wicked Takes the Witness Stand, and more.
