Book Groups

Each month, UCPL hosts three themed book groups, which are free and open to all. Call the Library at 314-727-3150 to get more information on participating in these Zoom-based discussions, or email the leader of each book group, listed below:

  • Orcs & Aliens Book Group — This group focuses on new voices in science fiction and fantasy and meets on the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. Email Kara at kkrekeler@ucitylibrary.org for information on participating.
  • Read the Classics Book Group — As the name suggests, this group focuses on classic novels, poetry, and short stories, and meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 2 p.m. Email Kathleen at kmgallagher@ucitylibrary.org for information on participating.
  • U City Book Group — Led by UCPL Director Patrick Wall, this group reads and discusses newer award-nominated or buzzed-about books, both fiction and non-fiction, and meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. Email Patrick at pjwall@ucitylibrary.org for information on participating.

Upcoming titles for each book are listed on the events calendar, and are available for checkout at UCPL.
