First Thursday was formed in 2009 by four Lit-Lovers who enjoy relaxed dynamic discussion on a wide range of books from a carefully considered reading list.

And FT is unique in that we have a diverse membership who bring depth to our sharing and discussions and who regularly attend the meetings.

On the first Thursday of each month we have an evening event called  First Thursday @Dinner which uses a reading list recommended by its members which  will suit many people.

Find our current reading list here:
and whilst you're there don't forget to bookmark the site for future reference.

This is a paid membership site (currently $10 for lifetime membership) and will suit those who want a smaller group of engaged and active participants.

The fee pays for hosting, but it also identifies those who want to make new friendships through the love of books via regular monthly meet ups. You can pay in a variety of ways including at your first meeting.

We meet on the first Thursday of the month to engage in lively discussions on our love of books. Our subject interest is as diverse as our members spanning fiction and nonfiction across all genres. Our reading list is created from members’ suggestions and we post them three months in advance.

We meet in variety of cafe venues, between 6.30 and 9.00-ish to listen, share and discuss whilst enjoying a coffee, a glass of wine, or something to eat.

To join and pay your fee go here. Once you've done that don't forget to RSVP for our next meetup.
