Can’t decide which Rumpus Book Club you want to join? Join both and get a discount!
How The Rumpus Combo Book Club works: You pay $45 a month and every month you get two books, regular book club and poetry, in the mail that haven’t been released yet. We’ll discuss the books all month while we read it. You’re invited to a moderated online discussion with the authors at the end of the month which we’ll edit and run on The Rumpus as a feature article (like this one).
We’re going to try to only read good books. We’ll fail sometimes. Some books we’ve featured in the book club include The Chronology of Water by Lidia Yuknavitch, Wild by Cheryl Strayed, An Untamed State by Roxane Gay, Insurrections by Rion Amilcar Scott, Abandon Me by Melissa Febos, Marlena by Julie Buntin, We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby, and New People by Danzy Senna. Upcoming writers include Carmen Maria Machado, Jon McGregor, Kate Braverman, Katia D. Ulysse, Melissa Broder, and more. Some of the poets we’ve featured include Harryette Mullen, Dean Young, Tracy K Smith, and Meghan O’Rourke.
Please subscribe by the 20th of the month to receive following month’s books and join in the chat with their authors. For example, to receive our March books, please make sure to subscribe by February 20.
