Still want more? We’re always on the lookout for great reads, so please check out our blog for more new picks, or stop by the store to hear about what we’re reading right now. Remember, we offer 10% off all titles purchased for a book club.  Just let us know at the cash desk to receive your discount.

Will Our Books be in Stock?
We have a dedicated Book Club section at the store and we encourage our customers to send us their book club reading lists.  Not only does this allow us to make sure that your books are on the shelves well in advance of the month for which you need the book, your selections can inspire other groups.  Please email Judith your book club lists at

    I was wondering if you have infomation on a university book club that meets somewhere in the south west and brings in speakers to talk about a book. I think they are featuring Old Filth at the moment.
    Thanks for your help.

      Hi Carol,

      I believe you are thinking of Literary Kaleidoscope, who meet the third Wednesday morning of the month at the Southern Alberta Pioneers Building.

      Their September meeting is tomorrow morning (9:45am), where Dr. Mary Murphy will lecture on February by Lisa Moore. The October selection if Old Filth by Jane Gardam.

      We have handouts with more information at the store. If you do attend, we recommend arriving early, as they are always standing-room-only.
