We welcome new members!

The group focuses on contemporary literary fiction. If you enjoy discussing modern and contemporary literary fiction then this is the book club for you.

We like to have lazy Sunday afternoon discussions of the book. Typically we meet every fourth or fifth Sunday of the month, between 3 and 5 pm and go for a bite to eat afterwards.

Where: several venues, Penderel's Oak, Waterstones, the park on a good day, the Southbank and other central London locations

When: 4th or 5th Sunday of the month 3pm until we are talked out.

Book choice: Literary fiction

The  meetup is free to attend, however when at a commercial location serving food we ask that you purchase at minimum a drink to patronise the business (please do not bring in food to a food establishment or we may be expelled).

RSVP etiquette
Please RSVP yes, only if you have every intention of attending. It is courteous to let me know if your circumstances change after RSVP'ing yes. It takes a lot of time and energy to organize this. Be considerate to the members who attend and update your RSVP's.

We understand the things come up in our busy lives. What we ask is that you kindly change your RSVP with advance notice (latest the day before) so that others on the waiting list may attend. We do track 'no shows' and will remove members fail to follow this RSVP etiquette. After three no shows we will remove you from the group.

We're 555 bibliophiles

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
