Afterwords Book Group

Afterwords Book Club formed in June 2014 and meets on the second Monday of each month. Prior to our meetings, club members nominate a book they'd like to read, and we all vote on our favorite selection. The person whose book is selected leads our discussion for that book. At the moment, our club consists of young professional women in our 20's and 30's, but we are open to members of any age and gender. 

There are two factions of the Afterwords Book Club: The 5:30pm group and the 7pm group.

For more information about the 5:30pm group, email Emily Palmer at

For more information about the 7pm group, Email Katelin and Alex at
