Malaprop's Book Club

The Malaprop's Book Club, hosted by Jay Jacoby, explores a diverse selection of fiction and nonfiction books determined by member suggestion. Under normal circumstances, they meet in the cafe the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm. Please scroll down to the current month and year to see what the club is reading now. For now, contact the store to be put in touch with the moderator if interested in joining

The group has resumed meetings on Zoom. Email jbjacoby@uncc.edu if you are interested in joining the Zoom discussion!
