Silent Book Club is a global community of readers and introverts, with more than 500 chapters in 50 countries around the world led by local volunteers. SBC members gather in person and online to read together in quiet camaraderie.
Silent Book Club started in 2012 with a couple of friends—Guinevere de la Mare and Laura Gluhanich—reading in companionable silence at their neighbourhood bar in San Francisco. They loved books, and reading with friends, but most of their previous attempts at book clubs had fizzled out.
Often with traditional book clubs there’s the scramble to finish the assigned book, and the pressure to have something smart to say. Wouldn’t it be great to have a book club where you could just enjoy books, friends, and drinks—without any homework?
At Silent Book Club, there’s no assigned reading.
