Catch All

for grownups

This book group has been meeting for fourteen years, but don’t be intimidated by our long run or that it's Little Shop's longest, continuously running book club! New members join all the time. What started as a book club for post-college, pre-babies twenty-somethings has evolved into a book club for mostly anyone, although as you can imagine, after meeting for eight years, we’ve tended to become thirty-somethings with a few babies thrown into the mix. We promise that we are a real book group that actually discusses the book, although we do tend to reference other books we’ve read fairly often, so be prepared for broad discussions that can cover a wide range of books and topics. Book group favorites include: The Night Circus, Revolutionary Road, We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, and Americanah.
