There’s nothing like the sound of a Book Club in the morning…

Founded in 2013, The Maxwell Morning Book Club typically meets the last Thursday of each month at 10:00 AM at the Jeff Maxwell Library at 1927 Lumpkin Road, Augusta, GA 30906. February, they are meeting at the Augusta-Richmond Public Library.

They will alternate between reading fiction and non-fiction. They try to decide 4-6 months in advance in order to give people time to read.

Join the Maxwell Book Club every last Thursday of the month to delve into a fascinating new read.  Check our local library, or with The Book Tavern, downtown for the book club books.

Be aware that plans are in the works to renovate Maxwell Branch, so it may be a few more months than just those 2 months in 2018 that they will need to meet elsewhere.

Don’t worry, there will be plenty of prior notification posted on the blog and Facebook page.
