Open Canon Book Club

The Open Canon Book Club is an online book club whose goal is to introduce readers to voices and portrayals of the American experience they may not have otherwise encountered in their day-to-day lives, their education, or their book club meetings. Literary diversity plays a vital role in making us understood to one another, and this hope of understanding is the hinge upon which our democracy swings. 

Left Bank Books is one of many independent bookstores supporting this book club. We offer the books at a 20% discount the month before and the month of the book club. If you have any questions, please email Shane.
