Book Club Spotlight: Murder in the Afternoon

BookPeople Book Clubs Logo

Did you make a New Year’s resolution to up your reading game in 2016? What better way to kickstart your reading life – and meet friendly new faces – than coming to one of our free book club meetings? We have a dozen bookseller-run, totally not at all intimidating, super-friendly groups that meet once a month to discuss books. Mystery, sci fi, classic fiction, history, nonfiction – we have a club to suit every reader’s fancy. Meetings are free and open to the public and are held here at BookPeople (603 N. Lamar Blvd, Austin, Texas). No RSVP or advance sign-up is required. Book club members receive 10% off that month’s book – just mention at the register that you’re buying it for book club!

We’re highlighting each of our book clubs throughout the month of January. Get to know the leaders, the books, and then come down and join the group!



Murder in The Afternoon Book Club

Sometimes you can’t wait until the evening to talk about murder. With that in mind, we invite you to join us for a book club, meeting on third Tuesday each month at 2PM on BookPeople’s third floor.
