The People's Library Book Club offers you the opportunity to access a small number of book titles from the library in the comfort of your own home. If you love reading and sharing your thoughts and questions with a community of like-minded strangers, then this could the literary opportunity you've been waiting for. Joining one of our book clubs is easy. Just select one of the book clubs from the list below and click the link to join. You'll be asked for your name and email address so that we can send you a digital copy of your chosen book. Please note that due to copyright restrictions, this copy is for your personal reading only and not for further distribution.
If you would like to join more that one book club, just repeat the process for each one. You can join as many of these book clubs as you like. You will see that for each book club we are holding a Book Club Social, an in-person guided conversation with like-minded readers at The People's Library, Long Gallery, Salamanca Arts Centre, Hobart. Of course we would love you to join us in the informal and welcoming social gathering connected to your chosen book, but we also understand that it may not be possible for you to attend. We are working on the principal that more readers = more questions = more conversation = inspiring book club. We've never done this before so let's see what we can do with the idea!
A Published Event are offering five titles across four Book Clubs for your off-site perusal. This is the list with a short indication of the content of each book. For more information, please click on the book title and/ or the author name, otherwise, just press the Sign Up link next to each Book Club and we'll email the book(s) to you!
