Book Club 2022                      

Book Club

Welcome to the Capitol Crimes Book Club! We are a group of avid mystery readers who gather every other month to talk about books. 

The best part of our club, besides our awesome and friendly members, is the fact that every meeting we are joined by the actual author who wrote the book we have just read! The author's presence brings a fantastic extra dimension to the book club experience allowing readers to explore the hidden layers between the pages.

All members of Capitol Crimes and Sisters in Crime (and friends) are welcome to attend. There is no cost to participate. For specific dates, times, and locations, please see the schedule below. 

Attendees may register for meetings they wish to attend by clicking on the link below.

Our schedule is set for 2022. Get your books and start reading, We can't wait for you to join us!
