KCTS 9 Book Club is a virtual book club event series created in collaboration with KCTS 9 and PBS Books. Monthly book selections are made by a rotating group of Washington authors who will also host the virtual discussions. The twist: authors will select books that aren't their own! Most months, books selected will be fiction, but we may change it up once every so often. Themes will correspond to current programming airing on KCTS 9.
All book club selections are discounted 20% at Third Place Books for the month prior to the discussion. (Discount applies only to physical copies. Audiobooks are available through www.Libro.fm. Should you need assistance locating an audiobook or Braille copy, please contact KCTS 9 at email@example.com or 206-443-5476.)
KCTS 9 Book Club meets on the third Wednesday of every month. All are welcome and no purchase is required.
