Young Readers

JOIN NOW FOR SEPTEMBER 2022

Are you aged 14-21 and love to read? Young Readers is a book club with a twist, we talk about books, films, authors, TV and our other interests. There will be no set reading or assignments, just come along, share your thoughts and get involved – everyone is welcome.

What we do

Every month we have a theme that we explore together. You can bring books along that relate to the topic, share your ideas and recommendations. You can find the themes for each month here:

September: Celebrating Black Stories

October: Thriller Stories

November: Lit Fest Focus
