Middle Grade Book Club

Led by local author Rebecca Caprara (The Magic of Melwick Orchard) -- readers can enjoy and discuss great mid-grade reads. Rebecca will also challenge participants to talk about their own stories and story ideas, and engage with them in writing exercises as well.

Young Adult Book Club

Young adult books are inspiring, emotional, transformational, and more. The genre has greatly expanded in the past 10 years, and many YA books are enjoyed by people of all ages, making its title almost a misnomer. They're so infectious that we wanted to start a book club specifically for them!

Led by our booksellers Daphne and Olivia, the Young Adult Book Club will meet periodically at the bookstore to discuss a work of young adult fiction. The YA Book Club meets on occasion at Acton-Boxborough High School, in cooperation with ABRHS librarian Anna Secino.
2018 Selections:
One Of Us Is Lying, by Karen McManus
Crazy Rich Asians, by Kevin Kwan
How It Went Down, by Kekla Magoon
Americanized: Rebel Without a Green Card, by Sara Saedi

Friday Morning Fiction Book Club

As the title suggests, this new book club will focus in on the adult fiction genre. Hosted by local writer Kyra Wilson Cook, the group will meet on the first Friday mornings of each month, and croissants will be provided free of charge from Legend Cafe! 
First Meeting
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan

Second Meeting
 Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter

FanGraphs Book Club

Store owner Paul Swydan used to write for the baseball analysis website FanGraphs, and its sister site, The Hardball Times. So, this book club combines his two loves -- books and baseball! Luckily, there are lots of people who love both, so why not form a book club to talk about them? There are so many fabulous baseball books out there, and we are going to talk about as many of them as possible. We will talk about them not at the bookstore, but in live chats on, as well as our Facebook group.

When possible, we'll try to recruit the author(s) to participate in the live chats with us, because the only thing more fun than talking about a book is getting to talk to the author about their book.
