This fall, Jefferson County Public Library is hosting an alternative take on the traditional book group. BYOB(ook) Group is a monthly, themed book group meeting at Westfax Brewing Company, 6733 W. Colfax Ave., in Lakewood, on the second Wednesday of the month (Nov. 14), from 6:30 to 8 p.m., and a second group at Wheat Ridge’s Colorado Plus Brew Pub, 6995 W. 38th Ave., on Nov. 12.

People come prepared to talk about books that fall into the given theme in a casual setting and enjoy happy-hour prices, then leave with book recommendations for the rest of their fall reading.

Upcoming dates and themes at WestFax include: Nov. 14, a non-fiction graphic novel; and Dec. 12, a book with a cover you hate.

The Wheat Ridge group’s dates and themes will include: a book with characters from a culture other than your own, Nov. 12; and a book of 21st-century poetry, Dec. 10.
