Ryan Darrow, manager of the Donelson branch of the Nashville Public Library, recently shared details about the different book clubs in the city that you can join. Kathy Schultenover is the coordinator of the Parnassus Book Club and the Classics Club. Kathy is a former English teacher who has been leading book groups for more than four decades, with great success. She created the Davis-Kidd bookstore clubs in Nashville and was director of the Davis-Kidd Book Club, the Davis-Kidd Classics Club and the Davis-Kidd Women's Book Club for seventeen years.
Kathy was also instrumental in opening Parnassus Books, and many members of her book clubs in Davis-Kidd now attend their book clubs in Parnassus. The meetings are always lively and engaging, with a varying number of participants of all ages. No matter what your preferred genre is, there's a good chance that there's a book club in Nashville that fits your tastes and schedule. The Gloss Book Club meets once a month to discuss a variety of literary genres, connecting women with shared literary interests.
You can also join us at Nashville's book clubs with these joint ventures between the NPL and community organizations. At Phat Bites, in Donelson, on the second Tuesday of every month, you can come and chat about some of the best current stories, courtesy of the Bite Size Book Club. Joining a local book club is not only an opportunity to explore the best of the literary world, but it's also a great way to meet new friends and participate in thoughtful discussions. The Book Club in a Bag kits contain 10 copies of a popular book, discussion questions, author biography and tips for the book club.
Parnassus also has a registry of book clubs, which allows local book groups to order and purchase their club's monthly selection at a discount.
