Armchair Travel Bookclub

Love to read? Love to travel? Love to make new friends who love to read and travel? Then this is the book club for you!

Open to anyone anywhere in the world, the Armchair Travel Bookclub combines the best of all of our favorite activities - reading fiction and non-fiction books that take us places, forming friendships while we discuss, and then traveling to, from, and maybe even with those new friends to some of those places we've been reading about.

How does it work? We read a new book every two months. Near the end of the 2nd month, a series of meet-ups will be scheduled: some in-person in different cities, some virtually for everyone to attend.

Bonus! As this book club is officially run by us, River Dog Book Co., if you choose to purchase the book through RDBC, you'll get some extra gifts that month! It could be a piece of art related to the story, a recipe for a dish from the book's location, or even something special from the author for just this club. You will also be invited to meet the author, either in-person or via a virtual bookclub meeting!

*Purchase of The Map of Salt and Stars includes: a letter from the author,
a limited edition art print hand drawn by the author herself, and access to a virtual bookclub discussion with the author, Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar, on Sept. 22.

[If you are from a country other than the USA or Canada, please contact us directly for payment processing and the digital download of the art print; a physical copy cannot be mailed to additional countries at this time – customerservice(at)riverdogbookco(dot)com.]

Join us by clicking on the MeetUp and/or Facebook links. The books will be announced in both groups, though naturally different conversations around the books will pop up in each location. Check out the list of scheduled events below!

WARNING: This book club may lead to discovering new favorite books, making new friends, and traveling to places (literally or figuratively) you never thought you'd go to before.
