A book club. A social group. A home for wayward readers.

  • Do you join bookclubs only to barely get through a chapter of the book?

  • Do you read cliff notes before every book club meeting in order to sound more 'informed'?

  • Is 'Do audiobooks count?' in your regular vocabulary?


There's a place for you here.



The Read is Semicolon's take on a modern book club. We pick a book at the beginning of every month, read said book, and meet at the end of the month to drink wine and talk about it. Simple.


During the month, we share interesting quotes, images, and gifs pertaining to the writing on our member's only blog, building relationships through reading, one word at a time.




Not in town but still want to join? Do it! $35/month includes your 'The Read' tee, bag, a different enamel pin, and the book of the month every month!



This month's pick is Tope Folarin's 'A Particular Kind of Black Man' Pick it up here, or drop by the store to get your copy!


Our next member's meeting is Wednesday, October 23th from 6-8pm right at Semicolon Bookstore. See y'all there!
