The Rumpus Book Club

$35.00 / month


How The Rumpus Book Club Works: You pay $35 a month and every month you get a book in the mail that hasn’t been released yet. We’ll discuss the book all month while we read it. You’re then invited to an exclusive moderated online discussion with the author at the end of the month which we’ll edit and run on The Rumpus as a feature article (like this). And, you can sign up for both the Poetry Book Club and the regular Book Club for just $50 a month by clicking here.

Books we’ve featured include Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado, Heart Berries by Terese Mailhot, Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls by T Kira Madden, Love Is an Ex-Country by Randa Jarrar, and Girlhood by Melissa Febos. Upcoming writers include Gene Kwak, Christopher Gonzalez, Gabrielle Civil, Eva Jurczyk, Suzanne Roberts, and more!
