Jeffco libraries introduces new twist on book group

Local brewery hosts monthly gathering in casual setting

Posted

This summer, try an alternative take on the traditional book group.

Jefferson County Public Library is hosting BYOB(ook) Group, a monthly themed book group at Westfax Brewing Company, 6733 W. Colfax Ave., Lakewood. The group will meet the second Wednesday of the month, from 6:30-8 p.m. Each month will have a theme, rather than a specific book.

“We want to reach people who might not normally come into the library but still want that sense of community with other book lovers,” Jennifer Kim, adult services librarian, said in a news release. “The themes ensure that participants don’t feel limited to read a specific book each month, rather they allow participants to explore new genres with the flexibility to choose their own titles.”

Participants should come prepared to talk about books that fall into the given theme, then leave with book recommendations for the rest of their summer reading.

The group dates and themes for 2018 are:

July 11, travel memoirs

Aug. 8, young adult novel with LGBTQ+ characters

Sept. 12, a book by a Colorado author

Oct. 10, a book that is translated from a different language

Nov. 14, a nonfiction graphic novel

Dec. 12, a book with a cover you hate

The book group will expand in September to a second location, Colorado Plus Brew Pub in Wheat Ridge. The Wheat Ridge group will meet the second Monday of each month, from 6:30-8 p.m. at Colorado Plus Brew Pub, 6995 W. 38th Ave., Wheat Ridge.

The Wheat Ridge group’s dates and themes for 2018:

Sept. 10, a book adapted into a film

Oct. 8, a book of short stories

Nov. 12, a book with characters from a culture other than your own

Dec. 10, a book of 21st century poetry.
