The official book club of Madison Books!

Madison Books hosts an in-person Book Club meeting every month at 6:30 p.m., usually but not always on the last Thursday. Drop in to chat with your neighbors about some of the best books of this or any moment. All readers are welcome–you don’t need to sign up in advance, but registering here will help us plan for the right number of attendees. Meetings are held at Parlour Wines, around the corner from the bookstore and across the street from the Madison Park tennis courts.

While most book clubs focus on the hottest current releases, we’re doing something a little different. We’ll be exploring narratives of New England and the Maritime Provinces, both contemporary and historical, fictional and nonfictional. Some you’ll certainly have heard of, maybe even already read and loved, but others may be serendipitous discoveries. We have a list we’re pretty excited about, and we hope you will be, too!

Our November selection is Mother/Land by Cheryl Savageau.

Savageau weaves traditional, personal and family stories, with stories of colonization and resistance, revealing a landscape of trees, ponds, rivers and mountains rich in meaning for Abenaki people. Mother/Land is beaded with gems from her mother’s jewel box-poems that tell stories of her mother’s life and death, and the complexities of love and survival.
