Book Groups

We run three evening book groups, taking place in the upstairs, private room of The Lansdown pub round the corner from the shop.

  • Fiction Book Club is on the last Wednesday of the month.
  • Non-fiction Book Club is on the last Monday of the month.
  • Ruthless Book Club is on the second Thursday of every month; Ruthless attendees will find we read experimental, dark, genre-bending writing – nothing is off limits.

The groups run from 18.30-19.45. Space is limited, so please contact us if you are interested in joining. We ask that you purchase a copy of the book from us, or a different book if you already own a copy.

The long anticipated Poetry Book Club and Short Fiction Book Club are coming in July!
These will take place in the upstairs, private room at The Albion.

  • Poetry Book Club is on the first Wednesday of the month. Dates for the rest of the year: 3rd July, 7th August, 4th September, 2nd October, 6th November.
  • Short Fiction Book Club (novellas and short stories) is on the second Tuesday of every month. Dates for the rest of the year: 9th July, 13th August, 10th September, 8th October, 12th November.

Poetry and Short Fiction meet in The Albion, 16.00-17.15. We ask that you buy the book from us and that you buy something in the pub – they have plenty of coffees/soft drinks as well as excellent beers!

For those who cannot wait until July, we have a couple of one off evening groups for poetry and short fiction as part of Independent Bookshop Week in June. Do sign up.

Do get in touch if you have any questions and sign up to our mailing list
