Book Groups – Book Clubs

What is your book group reading next??

We’d like to hear what you are reading throughout the coming year. We would be delighted to open discussion on authors or particular books too. The Library has a great selection of BOOK GROUP in a BAG, with hundreds of titles. There are also wonderful  Reading Group  or Book Club Guides (with questions, or if you like this author, read these).

Don’t forget to meet the author too = the Library has a number of author visits scheduled for 2011. Watch this space! There are quite a few regional visits of authors as well. Share if you plan to attend.

A favourite spot to locate new book titles, subject or ideas or award winning authors is htttp://

One of my book groups has a Poetry Pot Luck in December – an annual event now. In January we are reading  Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
