Book Chats

Want to join a reading group, but worry that the book of the month will bore you?

Book Chats is a great alternative. Instead of an official book to read each month, we have different themes that everyone can explore.

Book Chats is a relaxed and informal chat about books and reading and a great way to meet people in your area. Come along from 2pm to 3pm, sit back and enjoy the discussion.

No bookings required.
