Since the first meeting in December 2012 we’ve discussed all manner of books including from the following authors; Caitlin Moran, Sylvia Plath, Margaret Atwood, Jean Rhys, Sheila Heti, DH Lawrence and Dodie Smith and Patti Smith.
The Book Club isn’t strictly feminist but we have a general theme of ‘women’ i.e. independent and female only publishers, good female leading characters and new and established women authors etc. There are so many great women out there that it’s nice to have a focus.
Non Shoreditch Sisters (members or otherwise) are welcomed, as are guests of members subject to capacity – just get in touch to let us know if you’re thinking of coming along or bringing anyone else.
Old, new, classic, funny and sad tales are all considered and books are decided between us at meetings. We try to read all genres so feel free to bring your suggestions with you of anything you’ve been dying to get off your shelf, or something you have already read and want to share. We also try to get together at other events, literary or not and are a jolly nice bunch!
Where possible, meeting dates are decided in advance and you can find our next Book Club meeting in ‘Upcoming Events’.
We usually meet in cafes around the Shoreditch/ Old Street area.
We look forward to seeing you there!
