Third Place Book Clubs

In the store itself, Third Place facilitates book clubs for two interests:

Our Literary Book Club meets the end of the month, usually the last Monday, at 7 p.m. We discuss fiction and non-fiction, new releases and classics, and thus feature a wide variety of titles. The month’s selection is displayed in the store and discounted to all customers for a month before the meeting.

The Good Knits Club meets the second Monday of the month at 7 pm. Our emphasis is on knitting for a good cause. For the second year our goal is 200 hats for the homeless. We read shorter books, usually, but still enjoy a good discussion while we knit. Patti facilitates and answers all knitting questions – including “What do I do now?”

The Good Knits titles are discounted 20% to those who have a book club card.  Just ask for a card at the meeting or in the store. All are welcome to join these discussions!

Have your own book club?
Register your club for discounts and other club services, and browse our book club display in the front of the store to see what our 60 registered clubs are reading next.  Need some fresh ideas? Check out Emily's paperback suggestions here.

Literary Book Club


By Charles Frazier

Monday November 26 at 7pm

This suspenseful novel from the author of Cold Mountain, set in 1960s Appalachia, presents the compelling story of Luce, a young woman compelled to take in her troubled niece and nephew in the aftermath of their mother’s murder.  Luce led a solitary life until the children, who do not speak, came into her care, and now they are haunted by the man who may have killed their mother.  At some times tender, at others brutal, the tale of Luce and her young charges is a meditation on violence and the power of love to heal the deepest wounds.

Join Jane in the den for a lively discussion.

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

by Aimee Bender

Monday, November 12 at 7 pm


Join us to knit or crochet while we discuss The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, an imaginative novel in which a young girl discovers her ability to taste emotions through food in an unexpected way.  Bring your own project or help us reach our goal of providing 200 hats for the homeless in December.  New to knitting?  Come at 6:30 and get a free lesson.


We will take December off, and our next meeting will be January 14.
