2nd Thursday of each month, 7.30pm
Our book club is a friendly social group where we read and discuss a wide range of books. The club is a great opportunity to read books that may not usually be on your radar, and discover new favourites along the way. Our discussions provide an interesting way to consider a book more deeply, and discuss your thoughts with other local literature lovers, whilst enjoying the atmosphere in our cosy foyer, and a complimentary hot drink from our Fairtrade coffee shop.
At each meeting we take time to chat, catch up and discuss that month’s book. You will then borrow a copy of the next month’s book free of charge courtesy of Hedge End library. New members are always welcome, just come along to a meeting and we will get you settled in!
