Although called Caversham Critics, this book group is open to all friendly Reading based fiction lovers. We shall explore old and modern classics, contemporary fiction, and perhaps even pretend to be judges by comparing our notes on the shortlists for the big literary prizes.

We meet monthly in a pub in central Reading.

We are a friendly bunch and we generally stick around for some post-book banter and a few drinks too. So don't be shy: if the club sounds like your cup of tea, don't hesitate, join and spread the word!

To cover the costs of the meetup website we charge a small fee of either £10 per year or £1 per meeting attended- you can choose how to pay based on what suits you and how many times you plan to attend. There is no cost for your first meetup, so do come and try us for free!  Any surplus at the end of the year will be put towards a Christmas party or similar.
