One of our goals in 2015 is to begin a number of regular meeting groups to increase our community involvement. Peruse our offerings below, and if something catches your eye, sign up to show you’re interested. Once we garner enough interest in a particular group/event, we will contact those interested to set it up. We’re planning to add additional regular in-store events this year as well. Stay tuned for more info on upcoming events! If you have any suggestions for events or regular meeting groups, please let us know that as well!
Book Clubs – Including science fiction, fantasy, mystery, horror, and manga
Remember, we have board game night too!
Remember, we also have board game night every Sunday beginning at 6 PM. It’s free and open to the public, so stop by and play with us any time! No sign up required.
Do you have additional suggestions for in store events? If so, fill out the form below to let us know!
Looking for a great place in Mid-City to discuss fun and entertaining books with others? Tired of the same old books in the same old book club? Join a new group! We are looking to hold several book clubs, from Sci-Fi and Fantasy to Manga and Mystery. Let us know what you’re interested in, and we will hook you up with others who are interested in the same things.
If you give us your address, and you’re part of a book club, you just might find something special in the mail.
We’re currently gauging interest in the various groups. As soon as we get enough interest in a particular group, we will contact all those interested. We’re looking forward to reading some great books with you!
Would you like to meet Neil Gaiman? Want to see him in New Orleans?
