The AABCS Cruise was established in 2000, and was coined “A Literary Adventure Each October.” 

For six years the country’s top authors gathered with book clubs from all over America to share their love for the written word.   If you ever attended an AABCS event, then you are a part of our alumni family forever.

It was the year 2000 when a  group of avid readers had the vision to gather some of our country’s new and upcoming authors.   The vision of both The Good Book Club of Houston and the Circle of Essence Book Club of Galveston proved to be prophetic as this started a new literary Rennaissance and kinship of a new generation of authors.    For six glorious years, we celebrated literature and ignited friendships that would last a lifetime.

Will the AABCS take to the seas again?  We will see…  In the meantime please enjoy some of our fondest memories!
