Book Clubs

River Bend is proud to host two dynamic book clubs, one focused on fantasy and the other a mix of fiction and non-fiction.  All are welcome to join, and we ask that you RSVP in advance.


Fantasy Book Club

Escape reality with this club, led by River Bend regular and fantasy super-fan, Kara.  Meets one Friday each month, 6:00-7:30pm.  Check the calendar for dates.  RSVP on Facebook or by calling the shop at 860.430.6608.  Share your email to receive a link to the secure Zoom meeting.


General Interest Book Club

Jane Gordon-Julien, founder of Candlelight Writing Workshops, moderates this book club, which will read a mix of fiction, non-fiction and classics.  The club currently operates 3 groups, each meeting once per month.  New participants may RSVP by calling the shop at 860.430.6608. Continuing participants should RSVP to Jane. Contact Jane for Zoom meeting details.
