What Are You Reading?

Join Folio staff and your fellow members to talk informally about all kinds of books. No assigned reading and no pressure; just a gathering of book-ish people who share what they are reading.

Fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, audio books – be prepared to talk about what you’ve been reading and loving, and connect with other readers. The Unbook group meets twice a month on Zoom.
