Interested in joining a bookclub?

Bookworm 27 November 2008 6

Hi, I am new to Canberra and was looking for a book club to join on the northside. I have seen from previous posts that there does not appear to be many so I thought I might set one up. Please send me an email at if you are interested.

Not sure what books will be on the list but I have just recently bought the The Zookeeper’s War by Stephen Conte which won the 2008 Prime Minister’s Literary Award for Fiction. This might be a start but am completely open to suggestions. My initial thoughts are meeting once per month i.e. the first Wednesday of every month.

Venue to be determined!

Good on you for trying to start this and very brave too on this board where detracting in the guise of intellectual banter is mandatory.

I’ll email you separately.

I did read about knitting with dog hair in the Good Weekend a couple of weeks ago in an article about unusual books…LOL

But no, knitting was not the sort of books I imagined discussing.

By northside, I meant inner north. A quiet pub sounds good to me but I am still pretty new to Canberra so someone else would need to choose the venue.

Surely The Front is crying out for this?

By northside do you mean the inner north, belco or way up north in Alaska (Gungahlin). I would suggest making the venue a quiet bar somewhere, good books, interesting conversation and a few drinks, I’d join.
