Book Clubs

Sisters Connected Book Club
Sisters Connected is an African American Book Discussion group which began in July of 1998. The group is sponsored by the High Point Public Library. We meet in various locations to discuss books relevant to the African American experience. Everyone is welcome to attend. If you are interested please contact Maxine Days at 336-883-883-3671 or Jo Williamson at 336-883-3521 for more information.

The Readers’ Guild Sci-fi/fantasy Book Club
The Readers’ Guild Sci-Fi and Fantasy Book Club is a fun, casual monthly book discussion group for readers of science fiction and fantasy. The group reads everything from genre classics to hot bestsellers, and everyone has a say in which books the group reads. New members are always welcome.

The Readers’ Guild meets in the Book Lovers Room on the 3rd floor of the library one evening each month. For more information, please contact Sarah Goldberg at 336-883-3244.

Twelve at Twelve
Twelve at Twelve (PDF) is a general book discussion group for ladies who enjoy reading. The group meets monthly from noon to 1 p.m. and all are invited to bring lunch; drinks are provided. Group members are encouraged to discuss the book they have read recently, which leads to some lively discussions. Everyone is invited to attend. For more information about joining this group, please contact Geraldine McNamara at 336-883-3674.

Heritage Book Club
The Heritage Research Center sponsors the Heritage Book Club, moderated by Larry W Cates. Roughly quarterly, the club chooses non-fiction and/or fiction books related to a particular historical issue or topic that would be of interest to genealogists exploring ancestors in the southeastern United States. Past issues have included plantation life, Unionism in the Confederacy, the lives of Southern women, loyalists during the Revolution, the Reconstruction period, and moonshining.

Meetings & Discussion
Our in-person meetings will focus on how the various books we are reading relate to one another and the topic we've chosen. We also reflect upon the related circumstances, challenges and decisions faced by our ancestors. You need not be interested in genealogy, however, to involve yourself in our discussion. Call 883-3637 or email us for more info.
