Travel Lovers’ Book Club
Tattered Cover
2526 E. Colfax Ave.
Denver, CO 80206
(303) 322-7727
www.tatteredcover.com

Do you enjoy book about travel? Novels about far-off places or literature from other countries? Well the Travel Lovers’ Book Club at the Tattered Cover on Colfax is a great club for you. This book club meets the second Monday of every month to discuss the monthly travel-related book. This club also sponsors a regular book exchange and a chance to chat about your favorite travel destinations. If you have the travel bug, then there is no better way to get inspiration for your next trip than to join this great book club.

Book Chat
Schlessman Family Branch Library
100 Poplar St.
Denver, CO 80220
(720) 865-0000
www.denverlibrary.org

Most book clubs will have a specific monthly title, in which everyone commits to read that title during the month, then they all return to discuss that specific title. However, the Book Chat at the Schlessman Family Branch Library is a bit different. Instead of just one title, this club is more of a discussion group. Meet with other book lovers and find out what they are reading. Share your favorite books, essays and poems, or just sit and listen to others. Enjoy some tea and snacks while chatting about the many different books that everyone is currently reading.
