Clovis Book Club
Do you live in the Fresno/Clovis area and enjoy reading books in a variety of genres?
“We seek to think deeply with great authors who challenge us to view humanity in a different light. In the process, we hope to better understand ourselves and one another so that we can contribute to our community in meaningful ways. The group meets on the 3rd Friday evening of every month at A Book Barn in Clovis from 6:30pm – 8:00pm. Pick up a copy of our next book and be prepared to discuss and have an enjoyable evening!” To stay up to date, follow them on Facebook or Twitter, and sign up for their newsletter so you don’t forget about upcoming meetings.
Second Friday night of every month 6:30pm – 8:00pm
For a less formal setting, join the Clovis Book Club on the 2nd Friday night of the month as well for a general discussion on books – both popular and obscure – and the impact they have on our lives, our various cultures, and the society in which we live.
Third Friday night of every month 6:30pm – 8:00pm
