Coyotes Book Group

Best Public Book Club, August 2015

Bibliophiles will geek out over Coyotes Book Group, which meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month at Skylight Books in Los Feliz. Participants assemble around the trunk of the store’s potted ficus for discussions of democratically selected titles. A seasoned staffer facilitates the conversation, but it’s the passionate readers—a mix of regular members and drop-ins—who keep the gathering lively. Among the recent picks: Mary Gaitskill’s Veronica, Samuel Beckett’s Murphy, and Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice. Go for the dialogue, stay for the discount: Become a Coyotes member and receive 15 percent off the publication du jour if purchased at Skylight.
