What we're about

The Cardiff Book Collective meet every month on the last Tuesday for a couple of sociable hours of drinks, music and literary conversation, in a chummy atmosphere hosted at The Little Man Coffee Co. We’ll be discussing the book we’ve all been reading, amongst other things. The ambit of this group is modern literary fiction, with occasional forays into other literary forms when the mood takes us. The Cardiff Book Collective is all about kicking back and finding a little headspace amongst like-minded folk.

On The Come Up

Little Man Coffee

We are trying something new in July! On the come up is longer than our usual books but it should be a quick read! The award winning author of the The Hate U Give returns with a powerful story about hip-hop, freedom of speech and fighting for your dreams, even even as the odds are stacked against you. New readers always welcome, £1 payable on the day.

Everything Under

Little Man Coffee

In August we are reading Everything Under by Daisy Johnson. It’s been sixteen years since Gretel last saw her mother, half a lifetime to forget her childhood on the canals. There will be nothing for Gretel to do but wade deeper into the past, where family secrets and aged prophesies will all come tragically alive again. New readers always welcome! £1 payable on the day.

Ghost Wall

Little Man Coffee

In September we are reading Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss. Teenage Silvie and her parents are living in a hut in Northumberland as an exercise in experimental archeology. Her father is a difficult man, obsessed with imagining and enacting the harshness of Iron Age life. Haunting Silvie’s narrative reveals the secrets of the past violence and ritual as the summer builds to its harrowing climax. New readers always welcome! £1 payable on the night.


Little Man Coffee

In October we are reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Frankenstein is the classic gothic horror novel which has thrilled and engrossed readers for two centuries. This tale is a superb blend of science fiction mystery and thriller. New readers always welcome! £1 payable on the day.
