Top Shelf Reads

Interested in joining? Contact Jessica by email or call (269) 585-8711

Top Shelf Reads is a drop-in book discussion group especially for young professionals (20’s-30’s age set). Join us after work for drinks and a bite to eat offsite at a local micro-brewpub and restaurant and discuss edgy and offbeat reads. Our informal discussions last one hour, but participants are welcome to stay and hang out.

We meet offsite at Latitude 42 Brewing Co. at 7 PM on the second Monday of every month year round. See below for previous titles, and check out our events calendar for upcoming reads!

Latitude 42 is located at 7842 Portage Rd, Portage MI.
