East Bay Booksellers is very excited to host the Silent Book Club on Monday, March 12th at 6:30 pm.
Silent Book Club started in 2012 with a couple of friends reading in companionable silence at a neighborhood bar. Often with traditional book clubs there’s the scramble to finish the assigned book, and the pressure to have something smart to say.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a book club where you could just enjoy books, friends, and wine—without any homework?
Silent Book Club was started because reading with friends is awesome. Hearing about what people are reading (often in their other book clubs) and it’s important to put down our phones and be social. Real, live, breathing-the-same-air social, not hearting-you-on-Instagram social.
Silent Book Club is about community. Everyone is welcome, and anyone can do it. People are encouraged all over the world to start their own Silent Book Clubs. They have more than 30 active chapters in cities of all sizes, and new chapters are being launched by volunteers every week.
