How it Works:

Imagine an eclectic mix of people coming together for good food and stimulating conversation about a recently published book. That's the WEKU Book Club experience.

Each month, we'll announce the next Book Club selection. Then you can purchase a copy at Joseph-Beth and receive a 10% discount just by mentioning WEKU. Simply read the book and come to the next Book Club meeting at Joseph Beth-Booksellers in Lexington. 

After enjoying delicious food, we'll settle in for an hour of discussion about the story, its characters, the author, and more. It's a wonderful evening of food, companionship and conversation you won't want to miss!
