Join fellow like-minded readers at the Pequot Library’s Silent Book Club. Read, relax, and discuss your favorite books in our historic 1894 building. Hosted the third Thursday of every month.
Silent Book Club is a global community, with 300 chapters. Members gather in person and online to read together in quiet camaraderie. It started in 2012 with a couple of friends—Guinevere de la Mare and Laura Gluhanich—reading in companionable silence at their neighborhood bar in San Francisco. Their previous attempts at book clubs had fizzled out, with the scramble to finish the assigned book and the pressure to have something smart to say. In contrast, at SBC, there’s no assigned reading. Think of it as Introvert’s Happy Hour!
