Book Club

Each month My Bookshop hosts 6 book clubs. The meetings are held in store and all our groups study the same book. Sadly, we have no spaces (although we have a waiting list and you are welcome to email events@mybookshop.net.au if you would like us to put your name down). But we invite all our online Friends to follow the books we read, leave comments, and generate new discussions.

You are also welcome to join the online book clubs we run via My Bookshop’s podcast. Each month our bookseller Corrie Perkin hosts a book club on The Book Pod. Our first book was Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie. The Tall Man by Jane Harper was our second book, and our next book (episode to go to air in mid-April) is Middle England by Jonathan Coe.
