Book lovers in Houston have access to several amazing local bookstores. However, if you’re not up to browsing in stores right now, there is another option to connect with other readers and authors. These three bookshops not only offer online ordering, but also have virtual Houston book clubs and events that you can enjoy from the comfort of your Houston apartment.
Murder by the Book
If you love a good mystery, Murder by the Book is the bookshop for you. This unique store specializes in mystery and crime fiction and currently hosts its events in a virtual format. They often have live-streamed conversations with popular mystery authors.
Murder by the Book also hosts monthly virtual meetings of Sisters in Crime. This is a world-wide group that networks with and supports mystery authors.
If you’re looking for a virtual book club, Brazos Bookstore has a few to choose from. They meet online monthly to discuss the month’s chosen book. Even if you haven’t read the book, you are still welcome to join in.
The event calendar on their website shows the schedule for these and other events, including virtual story time, and conversations with famous authors.
Blue Willow Bookshop
Another option for virtual book events is Blue Willow Bookshop. This bookstore hosts many events, all of which are now virtual. They frequently feature live-streamed conversations with various authors, virtual storytime, and book clubs to meet online and discuss specific books.
