Bookman Book Clubs

Great American ReadJoin a NEW book club!

The Bookman is starting up 5 new book clubs in conjuction with PBS' The Great American Read program.

Make your 2018 a "Summer of Reading!"

  • Each book club will only exist for five months, ending around the same time The Great American Read broadcasts its final show announcing America's favorite book. 
  • Each book club will be designed for a specific age group.
  • Every month will focus on a different theme, but each group has the same theme.
  • Time of each club will be announced later this month.

We've got more detailed info about the groups listed below.  But if you have any questions, or would like to express your interest in joining one of the groups, call us at 616-846-3520 or e-mail at bookman@bookmangh.com.
