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.

Meetings


The Readers' Guild meets on the 4th Wednesday of every month in the Book Lovers Room on the 3rd floor of the library. For more information, please contact Readers' Services at 336-883-3638 or kathryn.fulp@highpointnc.gov.

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.

​On the Road Book Club

On the Road book club is a book club that gives you the chance to read authors from outside of the United States. There is no set genre, only that the book is unique in plot to its country. Each month there is a book guide made available to members with definitions, questions, playlists, articles, recipes, and read-a-like suggestions. We meet via Zoom the first Wednesday of every month between 1 and 3 pm. Contact Kathryn Fulp at 336.883.3640 or katy.fulp@highpointnc.gov for more information.
