Our monthly discussion group is organized by Cape Fear's Going Green and hosted by Old Books on Front Street. The group welcomes new members and one-time visitors.

We meet the first Tuesday evening of the month inside the bookstore. Social time is at 5:30, discussion begins at 6:00 and runs approximately 90 minutes or so. The bookstore closes at 8:00 p.m. There's no long-term commitment: you can come when the book being discussed is a title that interests you! (We do hope you'll read the book before you come, as it enriches the conversation.)

Snacks, beer and wine are available for sale inside the bookstore, for you to enjoy during our gathering. Old Books On Front Street offers a discount on new copies of the club selections, please call them for details, or ask at the register. 910-762-6657.

Here's the list of books we look forward to reading and discussing.
