There is a new physical sciences book club at Cellar Door Books in Canyon Crest. Its goal is to have a monthly discussion of exciting popular physics books. Both the books and the discussions will be accessible to a general audience (including high school students).
Science enthusiasts of any level or background (students, teachers,… anybody!) are welcomed. More information is online: http://faculty.ucr.edu/~flipt/physci.html or by contacting Flip Tanedo (Assistant Professor of Physics, UC Riverside).
