The Lit House Book Club

@ Duckworth's Bistrot

We invite you to sit down with us to discuss books we love over a glass of fine wine and dinner. This is not a lecture--guests are strongly encouraged to engage in the discussion. Our goal is to have fun in a thoughtful way. Make sure to reserve your spot early.* Seating is limited, and you'll want to give yourself time to read the book of the month.


2019 Book Club Schedule


Nov. 17 The Book of Delights by Ross Gay

Moderators: Christopher Anderson and Jenn Monroe will close out the 2019 season leading a discussion of this collection of essays that Pulitzer Prize winner Tyehimba Jess calls "...an illuminating and necessary meditation that unravels masculinity, race, tenderness, strength...all that is extraordinary yet hidden between the ordinary creases of life."

All Book Club events begin

at 5 PM


Duckworth's Bistrot is located at 197 East Main St., Gloucester, MA 01930
