Book Clubs

Calling All Grosse Pointe Book Clubs

The Friends of the Grosse Pointe Library is still looking to identify the many Book Clubs in Grosse Pointe. Our first project was to do a feature article on a Grosse Pointe book club describing what the book club is reading, how long they have been in existence and displaying a photo of the members.  

Read about these Book Clubs

If you would like to be considered for a feature story, please call 343-2074 ext. 204 and leave a message with your contact information or send us an email at gpfriends.org@gmail.com.

Read the article in the Grosse Pointe News (February 2014) on just a few of the many Grosse Pointe Book Clubs.  Way to go Grosse Pointe readers!!
