The Reading for Transformation bookclub is hosted by Spartanburg's Speaking Down Barriers organization and held at Hub City Bookshop! This bookclub engages with readings that focus on a holistic understanding of the transformation that must take place within ourselves and the world around us, as well as broaden our perspectives and lead us toward meaningful connection. Books can be purchased for discounted rates at Hub City Bookshop.
Reading for Transformation meets at Hub City Bookshop on the 4th Monday of each month at two separate times:
12:00 PM-1:00 PM and 7:00 PM-8:00 PM.
