It is fun to read a book and then discuss it with others who have also read it. You get more out of the book, learn from others' interpretations, and enjoy some camaraderie with other readers. That's why book clubs are so popular: they're social, intellectual, and cultural. Currently, Loganberry sponsors one book discussion group, and hosts two others, but there's always room for more.
Would you like to start another book discussion group (YA literature, poetry, mysteries, American history)? Do you have a current book club looking for a host location? Or do you just want some buying perks based on 10 or more copies of the registered book? Let us know.
Bucket List Book Club
Ah, the classics. Those timeless books that almost certainly showed up on your high school and college reading lists. How many have you read? How many do you wish you've read? It's not too late. Be reunited with an old friend (or an old foe!), or finally get yourself acquainted with one of those titles that it seems as if everyone in the world has read but you. We guarantee a spirited discussion. Led by Loganberry staffer and writer Susan Petrone.
Currently on hiatus
There is just so much good and important writing out there in the world of naturalists -- from environmental classics such as Rachel Carson's Silent Spring to even current fiction such as Barbara Kingsolver's Flight Behavior -- it seemed a great time to get a group together to read and discuss these old and new ideas. We will read books about climate change, birding, gardening, fracking, agriculture and community, food -- anything that might touch on our natural world in a broad sense. Each book discussion will be co-lead by Loganberry staff Freddy Scott and an invited guest with either a professional or passionate interest in the subject. Led by Freddy Scott and guest presenter.
3rd Sundays, quarterly, 1-3pm
Not YA Average Book Club
Open to teens age 15-18, we will meet on the 4th Thursday of every month at 4:00 PM via Zoom. Led by Miranda Richmond.
03/25/2021 4:00 Warcross by Marie Lu
When teen hacker, Emika Chen, accidentally glitches herself into a Warcross tournament she catches the attention of the game's creator- Hideo Tanaka. Hideo makes her an offer and Emika finds herself in a whole new world. The first ten TEENS that register for the event will receive a free copy of Warcross by Marie Lu! We will have a fun discussion and an even more fun activity (please have a writing utensil and paper ready- don't worry this won't be your average classroom activity)

Your Book Club Group
We'd love to add your existing book club to this list, or to start a new one. We'll even help you find more readers to make the discussions lively (if you are so interested). There are book discounts available (10% off for registered titles; 20% off for purchases of 10+ copies), and the (optional) use of our cozy LitArts room for discussions.
Book of the Month Club
Do you want new book recommendations, without the group discussion? Loganberry's Book of the Month Club delivers just that. Tell us what you generally like, and we'll set you up with good new reads along those lines, one per month as long as you're subscribed. Book of the Month Club is also an excellent gift for friends and family.
