Finding Bookish Community Online

This month, I sat down with three amazing Bookstagrammers - Grace Filer, Clay Mattox, and Jessica Berg - to talk about the Bookstagram community and each of their unique approaches to being a part of the ecosystem. We talk about a ton of books, but also about talking about books and building community around a shared passion for reading.

Grace Filer is the Cofounder of If Books Could Thrill, a thriller book club in the metro OKC area and she’s been on Bookstagram for 2.5 years.

Clay Mattox is a reader who rediscovered a love of books in adulthood. He’s one of the four Book Bros OK on Bookstagram who host book clubs at Bluebird Books in Edmond and Second Story Books in OKC.

Jessica Berg is a Librarian who works in cancer research & runs multiple monthly book clubs.
