About Us

The Book Club of Detroit is an association of Detroit-area bibliophiles who assemble periodically for the purpose of stimulating a mutual interest in books, manuscripts, and prints, specifically those aspects concerned with collecting, bibliography, design, production, publishing, photography, conservation, and preparation. Our chief aims are to further the interests of book collectors and to promote an understanding and appreciation of fine books and printing as well as modern technological advances.

Our members come from all walks of life, but the one thing we have in common is we all share a love of books and the printed page. Together we are the Book Club of Detroit, a group of individuals dedicated to celebrating and preserving the excellence of the written word in all matters related to books.

We meet several times throughout the year to enjoy a variety of programs featuring authors, book collecting experts, and special guests. Our venues include the homes of private collectors, libraries, rare book rooms, special exhibitions, book shops, and other unique places. Our events are always lively, imaginative, and informative. All members are encouraged to host or arrange events.

The Book Club of Detroit is a member of the prestigious Fellowship of American Bibliophilic Societies (FABS), which comprises book clubs around the United States.

We urge you to join with us and we promise you will be enriched and rewarded.
