Next stop is the Twin Cities as Reading Group Choices continues our Book Group City Tour in Minneapolis!
The reputation of Minneapolis as a literary hub is well known. Consistently ranked among the most literate cities in the country, boasting a large community of independent publishers like Coffehouse, Milkweed, University of Minnesota Press, Graywolf (and many others), and supported by a lively center for writers and writing, The Loft, which launched its Wordplay literary festival this year… readers have many reasons to feel at home here and in neighboring St.
Reading Group Choices heads south to New Orleans for the latest installment of our Book Group City Tour!
A mythic city known for its jazz, Cajun cuisine, French Quarter and life along the Mississippi, New Orleans is also steeped in literary history. From its annual Tennessee Williams festival to its independent bookshops, the Big Easy offers a sanctuary for readers.
As always, we looked for a variety of ways for readers to connect to book groups and enjoy bookish conversation. Several of the clubs are deeply connected to the city and region that inspires them.

Chicago is known for its architecture, blues and jazz, deep dish pizza, and beautiful lakefront.

And it’s a great place for readers to discuss books!

We’ve rounded up some options for SF readers to discuss their next great book in good company.
