Nantucket Book Clubs for 2022 Winter Readers

Nantucket Book Clubs is a new project created by Nantucket Book Partners (Mitchell’s and Bookworks) to connect and collaborate with the Nantucket community. The books to be featured were chosen by island nonprofits, businesses, and community members according to their missions and interests. The 2022 Book Clubs focus on grief, leadership, climate change, connection, community, diversity, and much more. All readers are welcome, both on-island and off-island, with zoom links and a virtual component possible.

Save 10% on the book picks by using coupon code ACKBOOKCLUB at Nantucket Book Partners website or just mention it in the stores. When you purchase the books from Mitchell’s Book Corner and Bookworks, you support your local bookshops as they continue to support the literary needs of our community members and organizations.

To join a specific book club, email for the information to be sent to you.  Dates and times are subject to change.
