Nantucket Book Clubs is a new project created by Nantucket Book Partners (Mitchell’s and Bookworks) to connect and collaborate with the Nantucket community. We reached out to nonprofits, businesses, and community members to pick books to read and discuss together in 2022 according to their missions and interests. Our 2022 Book Clubs focus on grief, leadership, climate change, connection, community, diversity, and much more. All readers are welcome, both on island and off island, with zoom links and a virtual component possible.
Save 10% on the book picks by using coupon code ACKBOOKCLUB at https://www.nantucketbookpartners.com/2022-nantucket-book-clubs or just mention it in the stores. We hope you consider buying the books from us and supporting your local bookshops as we continue to support the literary needs of our community members and organizations.
If you would like to join a specific book club, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make sure you get the information. Dates and times are subject to change. For up to the minute book news, sign up for the Nantucket Book Partners' Book Blast >>> tinyurl.com/3yf2bkbk
