WVIA Page Turners Book Club

Welcome to the WVIA Page Turners Book Club!


Do you love curling up with a good book? Enjoy socializing with other like-minded book lovers? Love staying up all night because you can't stop turning the pages of your latest read? Then we invite you to join our book club, fittingly titled the WVIA Page Turners.

The WVIA Page Turners is a book club of WVIA Public Media, the NPR and PBS affiliate station of Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania.

In alignment with the mission of WVIA, the purpose of the Page Turners is to educate, inspire, entertain, and promote diverse cultures and perspectives. While we plan to highlight PBS and NPR programming, we aim to enrich our commitment to the arts, support our local libraries, and bring people together.

The Page Turners book club will take place across multiple platforms including on social media, on radio, and at in-person events. To become a Page Turner, all you need to do is start participating. The book club is free and open to everyone!
