Book some time to discuss great reads with the Edgewater Library Book Group, meeting monthly at the new Edgewater Library, 1800 Harlan St. On Saturday, Jan. 12, 1 to 2 p.m., they’ll discuss Bob Spitz’s 2012 nonfiction book, “Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child,” which draws on the culinary figure’s personal diaries and letters to present a one-hundredth birthday commemoration. Suitable for adults.

On Wednesday, Jan. 9, 6:30 to 8 p.m., the BYOB(ook) Club takes the traditional book club out of the library to WestFax Brewing Company, 6733 W. Colfax Ave. – where the beer is liberated and the dogs are welcome! Read any book that falls into the monthly theme – Read a Debut Novel – and show up to share, imbibe and receive great book recommendations. Happy hours prices are available for attendees.

Across the border in Wheat Ridge, a rival BYOB(ook) Club meets Monday, Jan. 14, 6:30 to 8 p.m., to share and receive recommendations on travel books – this month’s theme. Monday is BOGO on some delectable beers, including an aptly named choice from Fiction Beer Company. Service animals are welcome, but please leave other four-legged friends at home.
