Postmarks & Paperbacks is an online book club for lovers of books, letters, and the art and history of communication. It meets quarterly to discuss postal-themed books, including a range of selections drawing from epistolary novels, popular history books about the USPS or philately, and novels in which letters, the post office, or stamps play a central role. We think you’ll be surprised and delighted by the range of books this encompasses, so dive in and read along with us as we explore these themes.
Who: Anyone can join.
When: Quarterly on Monday evenings at 7 pm ET
Where: Online, via Zoom
Tickets: Registration is required and limited for this free, virtual program. A Zoom link will be sent to participants 24 hours before the program.
