messageBook Clubs in ED or surrounding areas
Posted by Sparkler 07 August, 2018 11:53

Hello,

I'm looking for an evening book club in either East Dulwich or the surrounding areas (Peckham, Brixton, Herne Hill etc). I'm 27yrs old, so looking for an evening book club which can often been accompanied with a glass of wine and a side of humour.
If anyone has any recommendations, please let me know smiling smiley

Thanks,

Sophie

Yep, Iíd also be interested in either joining an existing one or starting a new one for ED, having bought way too many books for a week away, Iíve got a backlog to get through (and accompanying reading with discussion and wine sounds great).

Im happy to have a go at setting one up - it looks like there's enough people interested? Maybe if everyone who'd like to come could DM me your email and we can try and find a date and a book?

I'd be interested in joining if you start one! Perhaps could book a space at a pub?

Definitely, hardest part will be choosing a pub!

Suggestions of books to read:
Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
The Water Cure Sophie Mackintosh
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
All the light we cannot see by Anthony Doerr

Selfishly in my to read book pile!!

This fantastic series [surely deserved a third season!] should get you in the mood

[www.youtube.com]

Both Radio 2 and 4 have book clubs:

[www.bbc.co.uk]

[www.bbc.co.uk]

podcasts here: [www.bbc.co.uk]

Even the World Service has one:

[www.bbc.co.uk]

Here is a warning against the evils of booze and book clubs; as ED residents are well known for their love of grog, I doubt this piece's findings will have any real effect!

[www.bbc.co.uk]

Would post more from other sites, but am on the bus. Good luck with the club, maybe do a podcast or at least a blog with twitter/hipstergram account to share thoughts on what you are reading?

Thanks for posting the link to our site. I run the East Dulwich WI Bookclub with Kirsten Ing.

We currently have a great age cross section - from late 20s to 60s and we combine our club with having a curry and a great chat! We currently have 11 members with roughly 7 to 8 attending each event.

We do accept non WI members in or Bookclub so please do feel free to message me if you are interested in getting involved.

We choose books democratically 2 months in advance to give everyone plenty of chance to fit in reading around schedules.

All of our dates and details are on the website including reviews of our last few books. Please do follow the East Dulwich WI on Facebook or Twitter to keep up to date with all of our posts.

Chloe
Social Media Manager
EDWI

Edited to add: Please do feel free to drop me a line if you'd like any advice about setting up or running a new book club, there are certainly some things we have figured out over the years that we could pass on smiling smiley
