It’s always nice to cozy up with a good book during the winter months, and it’s even better to discuss the book you just read with fellow readers. These days more book clubs are conveniently meeting online. So, instead of bundling up and going out in the cold, you can stay in your warm Naperville apartment to meet up with online book clubs in Illinois. If you’re interested in joining a book club but are unsure where to start, we can help! Here are a few local book clubs that you may be interested in joining.
Book clubs at the Naperville Public Library
The Naperville Public Library offers a few different book clubs that are all meeting over zoom. The first club, Reader’s Night Out, doesn’t talk about a specific book, but instead, readers discuss and share their recent reads or favorite books. The book club meets the first Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. The next book club offered through the library is called Criminal Spines. As the name suggests, this club focuses on mystery, thriller, suspense, and true crime novels. Next month the club is reading The Dime by Kathleen Kent. They meet on the second Thursday of every month at 7:00 p.m.
Suppose you have some free time during the day. In that case, the library also has a book club that meets on the second Tuesday of every month at 11:00 a.m. The Readers’ Rendezvous Daytime Book Club discusses a variety of genres in fiction and nonfiction. All you have to do to join one of these fun book clubs is register on the library’s website.
Books and Brews
The Books and Brews book club reads different genres and drinks wine, but if wine isn’t your thing, you are welcome to drink whatever you choose. They meet the first Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. Lately, the club has been meeting up on Zoom to discuss their current read. Next month the group is reading The Razor’s Edge by W. Somerset Maugham. If you’re intrigued and would like to join, you can find out more and join the group on their Meetup page.
Northwest Suburban Fantasy Book Club
Last but not least is the Northwest Suburban Fantasy Book Club for anyone who loves to read fantasy. This group reads any fantasy, from urban to classic, and occasionally science fiction. The book club meets on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. and is currently meeting over Zoom as well. They do have a membership fee, but it’s only $1.00! In addition to this, this club allows members to vote on what to read next two months in advance. For more information, check out their Meetup page.
