The Selkie Book Club

   A book club for strange stories about doors behind doors & mystical beings & fantastical quests & shimmering sorrow & swords in stones & above all, magic. The Selkie Book Club at The Spiral Bookcase is a monthly gathering focused on adult fiction that asks the reader to shed their skin for a moment or two. From folklore-inspired modern myths to supernatural & scintillating prose, the Selkie Book Club’s selection varies each month, but always promises to be strange & magical. 
Read all the books, read one or two, come every month or only when the fancy strikes you! The goal of this book club is to re-enchant your love of reading :) As such, there's only a few rules:
- No racism, sexism, homophobia or transphobia.
- You're allowed to dislike a book! Just be (mostly) polite about it :)
- Come hungry to discuss & devour all aspects of a story.
- Please make sure you join the Zoom call no later than 7:50 PM, or you may not be able to join at all :(
   The Selkie Book Club meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30 PM EST via Zoom. To join the club, we simply ask that you purchase a ticket! You can purchase the book itself wherever you'd like, including from Spiral, or grab it from the library. All links below are affiliate links, so Spiral earns a small commission when you make a purchase through them.
