Welcome - First Thursday (FT) is a book club where writers and book lovers meet.
We enjoy relaxed dynamic discussions on a wide range of books from a carefully considered reading list and provide a great forum to meet new people. FT supports new and emerging writers and during the year we invite them as guests to speak at our @Dinner events.
Formed in 2010 we have a group called ‘The First Thursday Originals - FTO’. The Originals meet on the first Thursday of each month (except January). We have an evening event called First Thursday @Dinner (6.30 – 8 pm) which is facilitated by Joe Lockington who is one of the founders of FT. Over wine and dinner we discuss our reading list recommended by its members which will suit many people.
The Originals reading for the 6th of April is: 'Birdsong' by Sebastian Faulks and 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' by Rachel Joyce. More information here.
We also have a Crime Fiction Group (CFG) within First Thursday which meets on the first Saturday afternoon of the month (in a pub). The first CFG event is in April and you can RSVP on the calendar for April. In time, The CFG group will have crime fiction writers as special guests at their events too.
CFG reading for the 1st of April is: 'Bruno, Chief of Police' by Martin Walker and 'Big Little Lies' by Lianne Moriarty.
When you join First Thursday you can move between SIGs (Special Interest Groups) & Genre. We have a ‘one membership many genres’ policy - so mix it up, move around or stay with The Originals – which is the default membership type.
First Thursday is a paid membership site and on the Meet Up platform there is a one off fee of $10.00 ($15.00 from the 1st of April) and will suit those who want a smaller group of engaged, discerning and active participants.
Use our events calendar to RSVP for the SIG/Genre group of your choice. There will be a $2.50 fee to RSVP from the 1st of April 2017.
