About the Event
All She Wrote Books is thrilled to announce our third Sunday morning book club in-store, called Breakfast Club!
Our book club selections feature diverse and thought-provoking literature, with a focus on LGBTQ+ and feminist literature. Each book has been carefully chosen to inspire meaningful discussions and offer unique perspectives on love, identity, and belonging.
For August's book club selection, we will be reading You Made a Fool of Death with Your Beauty by Akwaeke Emezi. Join us on August 13th at 10:30am at the bookstore, for a lively discussion. We will also have donuts and coffee from Union Square Donuts!
Tickets are limited to due to capacity at the bookstore, and each ticket will include either a copy of the breakfast book club pick or a $5 All She Wrote Books gift card.
Our event has a limited capacity and we want to ensure that as many people as possible are able to attend. By letting us know that you can no longer attend, we can open up your spot to someone on our waitlist who is eager to participate.
