Silent Book Club

We host the Tulsa chapter for this global book club phenomenon. It’s a book club for introverts — bring your own book and read quietly to yourself for an hour without reading alone. Or if you need someone to chat with about that “OMG!” twist, the book you just finished, or what to read next, you’ll have a community of readers (and our MCB facilitator) who will be there when needed.  

**NOTE** Our Silent Book Club will be on hiatus through the remainder of the year. We hope to relaunch Silent Book Club in 2024 in coordination with one of our community partners. Stay tuned for updates!
