We're thrilled to announce a new fall lineup for Silent Book Club! From Michigan to Florida and California to New York, introvert happy hours are sweeping the nation.
When we started Silent Book Club, our vision was to create a movement founded on the principle that real-life connections matter more than ever in today's digital world. Our social lives are governed by algorithms, texting has replaced the sound of a human voice, and email crawls into bed with us at night. Too rarely do we take the time to disconnect, to carve a few hours out of the day to sit quietly and not work.
With Silent Book Club, we wanted to lower the bar on book clubs. No assigned reading, no discussion guides, no pretty plated snacks or Pinterest potlucks. Just a bunch of like-minded book lovers doing what we do best: reading.
Since January, Silent Book Club has expanded to 15 cities (and counting). Our monthly meetups are hosted entirely by volunteers, and more than 2,000 members have joined the club. And we're growing fast. It turns out that reading with friends is catching. We couldn't be more delighted.
Bring a book, bring a friend, and just read.
