History Book Group

Our Book Groups (regular and history) at Byrd’s Books meet on Thursdays from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. each month (see calendar). These are open Book Groups - you are welcome to come if you would like to join us for discussions. For information call: 203-730-2973. We make every effort to have the book available in paper for the Book Groups and choose a hardcover only rarely.

The History Book Group meets the second Thursday of the month - all are welcome thatwould like to discuss the book.

Any cancellations due to weather will be posted on our website and our Facebook page.  Some of us meet at 6:30 for take-out. Please email Alice (alice@byrdsbooks.com) to join in for the meal before the discussion.
