Welcome to Storyhouse Book Club!

Love reading? Hate reading? Need an excuse to read? Don’t know what to read? Come along to our monthly Storyhouse Book Club.

We don’t have any rules, but if we did they would look like this…

– Everyone is welcome, every time
– You don’t have to come every month
– You don’t have to speak if you don’t want to
– You don’t even have to read the book!

Come along for lively discussion, piercing insights, lots of open-minded warmth, drunken fistfights and great conversation. (Note: only one of these is not guaranteed).

When? All meetings take place on Wednesdays at 7.30pm, and last about an hour.
