Book Club Groups

CYCWA Happy Hour Book Club and Book Mates promote camaraderie among book lovers within the California Yacht Club, provide a forum for stimulating conversation, and expand our members’ knowledge and enjoyment of literature. We offer two different groups, daytime and evening. Join us for one or both! Meeting dates, times, and selections are announced in The Breeze, the weekly Zephyr, flyers located on the bulletin board, and on this CYCWA web site.

Book Mates lunch meetings are held the first Thursday of every month, in the Fireside Room, from 11:45 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Call the club for reservation and lunch information.

Happy Hour Books meetings are held the third Wednesday or Thursday each month (see below and on the calendar), in the Gallery Room, beginning at 6:30 pm. $10 for wine and cheese inclusive.

Reservations for lunch or appetizers are essential.
Please book your reservation by the Sunday preceding the meeting.
