"We're thrilled to celebrate 5 years with our regular and new customers! It's so rewarding to bring readers together at our free book clubs and author events. We named the store BOOK CLUB so that everyone that enters feels like they're a part of a club." Cynde Acanto, Owner
BOOK CLUB has received numerous awards this year including: Hula Frog's Most Loved Toys & Books Store, and Connecticut Magazine's Readers Choice New/Indie Bookstore. It was also named to Atlas Obscura's 62 of the World's Best Independent Bookstores. “The excellent service by the bookstore staff and owner; the number of events, author workshops, and open forums on topics important to our community. The store supports local programming (as host) and local community organizations in an effort to increase community involvement and awareness of community issues. The variety of books for adults, young adults and children with a chance to meet local and Connecticut authors at the store! The feeling of walking into your own home library when you enter the magical world of our local bookstore!” —Andrew Paterna, Deputy Mayor of South Windsor
