Book Group Corner

Due to Covid-19 concerns, book groups will not be meeting in the store until further notice. However, some book groups are meeting virtually. If you are in a book group or want to join one, please phone or email the group's contact person (listed below) for book selection information and virtual meeting instructions.


Orinda Books offers a lovely space for book clubs to meet and discuss their latest read. Contact the store to see what time-slots are available. We offer a 10% discount to all book clubs that register with us and are always available to offer help choosing your next great book.
