Shelley Macbeth at Blue Heron Books in Uxbridge is one of the most knowledgeable and passionate booksellers I’ve had the honour of meeting. They planned an author talk and book signing and it was one of the most successful events I have ever done. And I’ve done over 300 events! A truly amazing bookstore. —
BHB Book Club
Our in-store book club was established in 2004 and is open to all. This constantly evolving group meets the 3rd Wednesday of every month at one of Uxbridge’s local restaurants for an informal and non-threatening discussion of each month’s pick.
Dinner, for those interested, commences at 6:30pm and the meeting starts one hour later at 7:30pm.
Sometimes the event can incorporate a theme from the month’s selection through a specially designed menu such as the Ukrainian meal chef Jeremy Buckingham created to complement A Short History of Tractor in Ukrainian by Marina Lewycka (our November 2010 book club pick) or we will have the author join us to encourage a more in depth discussion. Angie Abdou joined our group in 2011 to discuss The Bone Cage just before the finals of Canada Reads.
This group is open to all.
Please note that all book club selections are 20% off for book club members.
