Historic Newton's History Book Club meets regularly to discuss books about history. Meetings are free and open to all. Simply read the designated book in advance and come prepared to discuss it at the meeting. To receive notifications, send your name and email address to social@historicnewton.org.

See the list of books that the History Book Club has read from 2008-2018.

The next meeting takes place Thursday, November 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the Jackson Homestead to discussThe Cold War: A New History by John Lewis Gaddis. The New York Times calls is a "succinct, crisply argued account" of the Cold War that "synthesizes the mountains of archival material that began appearing in the 1960s." 

No advance reservations are needed. We hope to see you at our discussion. For information, please call 617-796-1450.
