Book club enthusiasts, we have some exciting news! Since November 2017, Bookmans went from one book club, the Midtown Backroom Book Club, to having 5 book clubs! Tucson’s Northwest Backroom Book Club is in full swing as is the New Adult Book Club, but you can still sign up to join them by emailing! Bookmans first Young Adult Book Club kicks off at Bookmans East on June 8, and high school-age teens can still grab a seat and help pick the first book you’ll be reading! Send an email to and reserve your spot.
The new Mesa store book club is looking for a book lover to lead the discussion. If you are interested in guiding the Mesa Book Club on their literary journey, email for more information! Remember, book club members get employee discounts on their book club reads, so if you want to come and be where the literary action is, join a Bookmans Book Club!
There’s so much more going on all month long, so be sure to keep an eye on our events calendar!

Happy Summer!
