Book Club

NRI’s book club is a quarterly program that features books written by NRI fellows and our founder, William F. Buckley Jr. NRI selects books based on club members’ feedback and we plan to highlight new releases written by the fellows and other authors within the NRI network.

Please note that the book club is for NRI supporters who give at the $250 level and up. We hope you will consider giving a tax-deductible gift to National Review Institute, the non-profit journalistic think tank that supports the NR mission, to join us for our book club and our other virtual programming! If you have any questions or would like to register, please email
