Books & Beyond Book Club

Books & Beyond meets the third Tuesday of every month from 6:30 – 8:30 PM

Book club participation is on a monthly basis. We will take suggestions on book club picks, but ultimately Joe’s Place will make the final decision based on cost & availability. The books for January, February, & March are One More Thing Stories and Other Stories, The Kitchen House, and The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Payment for the book is required when you sign up. The last day to sign up for February’s meeting is Friday, January 5th. The last day to sign up for March’s meeting is Friday, February 9th.

*Space is limited to 15 people on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Classics Club

A book club for lovers of the classics! Meetings take place on the first Monday of every month from 6-8 PM

The theme for February, March, and April is Dante’s Mountain. We’ll be reading The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri (specifically the translation by John Ciardi) over the course of the three months. February – Inferno, March – Purgatorio, & April – Paradisio. Since we’re not requiring participants to buy the books through Joe’s Place, there will be a $7 charge per meeting to help cover admin costs. We do have copies available for sale in the store. If you choose to purchase your book through us the admin fee will be waived for those three months.

*Space is limited to 15 people on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Cookbook Club

We’re excited to introduce a book club for cookbook collectors! Meetings take place every other month.

The concept is simple – buy the featured cookbook from us, pick a recipe to prepare, bring the dish to the next meeting and share your cooking experience with the group. For the next meeting participants will be preparing dishes from Super Tuscan. Copies are available to purchase. The meeting date is January 29, 2018.

*Space is limited to 15 people on a first-come, first-serve basis.
