Jason's Books & Coffee would be delighted to host your literary activity. Send an email to our hello@ account with the details and we'll get you squared away.

Writers' Groups & Book Clubs

Reading and writing are essential to the well-balanced soul. We support your efforts by offering a comfortable and accessible space to engage more deeply in the literary arts.

The conference room. Not pictured: The TV, the loveseat, or the cat and his toys.
  • Small groups of up to six are welcome during business hours at any time, without notice, and without cost, with seating in the cafe area or the events space.
  • Groups of up to eight are welcome to use the conference room. Booking is dependent on availability, so prior notice is required. Use during normal business hours is free if the space is available; use outside of our normal business hours is $25/hour, with discounts available depending on circumstances. The conference room includes access to the kitchenette and to our office cats, Theon and Kali, and to one of the office snakes, Apollo. It's provisioned with a white board, a TV that supports device casting, and a chair and loveseat combo.
  • Groups affiliated with the Grand River Writing Tribe may always use the conference room for free regardless of the operating hours.

  • We offer 80 folding chairs and 16 six-foot tables that can be configured as you need.
