Charge your Kindles and dust off your library cards.We're starting a book club.

Since you enjoy reading our content, the staff of the Brotherly Game would like to point you in the direction of some other great literature about the beautiful game.

We will read one book and host a discussion at the end of each month. The discussions will take place on the last Tuesday of the month at 8pm. After each discussion, we'll post a short recap and review of the book. Check out the list below.
