NEW FOR 2018!

Meetings At: Anderson's Bookshop Downers Grove - 5112 Main St, Downers Grove

Announcing The Bowie Book Club in Downers Grove! Based on the official group being lead online by Duncan Jones (son of the late David Bowie), customer favorite Kathleen will lead this fun book group monthly in Downer's Grove. This group will meet the last Wednesday of every month to discuss the current selection (as announced by the “official” book group). Anderson's will try to follow the official selections as much as possible. If the official selection for the month is not available to us, Kathleen will choose something Bowie related or another title from Bowie’s top 100 books list.

All meetings will be at Anderson’s Downers Grove from 7pm to 8pm. List of dates below!

(In the event of date conflicts with author visits, our back-up location will be the new whiskey bar across the street (Pierce Tavern)!)
