First Thursday Book Club Pages

What makes us different
We are a membership of active participants – yet small in number. That’s a good thing, as our history is one of being associated with a larger group called The Last Friday Book Club.

Our Reading List
You can view our reading list for this month by clicking here http://first-thursday...

We have a one off membership/joining fee – this identifies commitment and undertaking but it also pays for the Meet Up site. We have moved away from asking attendees to pay per meet up to sharing the load across all members.

We support local authors, poets and writers and have had them talk about their work to our group. We wish to expand this program in 2011

During 2011 we will continue to have our evening meet up but will also have a day time meet up with the same book selection. This will be from 11 am to 12:30 also on the First Thursday of each month. You can attend both sessions if you like. This will be a group of six maximum and it will be held at various venues around Brisbane.

Our History
FTBC was begun by members from The Last Friday Book Club who wanted to meet on a different night and to make a smaller group of book lovers. We began with four members, Hazel, Alison, Roslyn and Joe. We have grown and continue to grow with like minded people from all walks of life.

Our Future
Develop great relationships with new and emerging authors and writers across the full spectrum of literature. Expand this to supporting local bookshops and libraries.

Informal - Formality
– all new members wonder about this process. What happens at a book club? If you’ve never been to a book club before and remain curious - this might help.

6:00 – 6:30 pm – Greetings and meeting. Please order your drinks and foods. If it’s at the Three Monkeys then best order for the night’s consumption. Sequence the main, deserts and coffee now (and it’s also a BYO).
7:00 – 7:15 – Guests and authors –
7:15 – 8:30 – Books for review and discussion.
8:30 – 9:00 – Finish (for those who didn’t early order – your coffee has just arrived)

Join us today.
