Tacoma Sister Cities Book Club

Tacoma Sister Cities Book Club meets the third Monday of every month at King's Books. Each month, this book club focuses on one of the countries of our fourteen Sister Cities. This book club aims to promote cultural understanding of international issues by reading contemporary novels and new translations of classics. Plus, we'll have unique snacks and drinks representing each country! Each month, the selected book is available for purchase at King's Books. To see what we're reading this month, go to the main Events page. For questions, contact sweet pea.
