Kazoo Books welcomes new groups!
If you’re looking to start a book club, writers group, something else — or if you need a space to continue an established group — we have several openings. We can accommodate up to about . Groups generally meet during business hours (9-7 Monday thru Friday) or immediately after. 7 or 7:30 PM meetings are fine as long as a representative is arrives before closing.
There are a few rooms to choose from, including the fireplace room or a large table surrounded by vintage fiction. We have ample parking in back and are handicapped accessible. Coffee and tea are provided, and we also offer use or a kitchenette if you’d like to bring additional refreshments.

Science Fiction Book Group [OPEN]
3rd Wednesday of each month, 6:30PM
We choose a different book each month, sometimes a classic, but usually a newer title, and meet to discuss it. We welcome fans with years of reading experience or new readers interested in the genre. This is a casual, friendly group that always finds something to talk about and is always interested in learning about new authors and books. Contact John if you’re interested in participating.

Joy of Writing Group [OPEN]
Every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month, 6:00 pm
“We are a working writer’s group all writing in similar genres: fantasy, sci-fi, and paranormal in various combinations with a little mystery and poetry thrown in for variety. Our critique of one another’s writing is kind and honest. Most of our members are published authors or in the process of becoming published which gives us a great support system as we navigate the writing and publishing worlds. ”
Contact Linda if you’re interested in participating.
Death Cafe Kalamazoo
4th Wednesday of each month, 6pm
At a Death Cafe, people, often strangers, gather to drink tea and discuss death. Their objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’.
A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.
2nd Saturday of each month, 11am
A monthly meet-up with typewriter enthusiasts. Check out their Facebook page.
Mondays | September 23-November 18, 7-9pm.
