What we're about

We are a diverse group that meets once a month to review our chosen book.

Members contribute to choosing the books and take turns leading the discussion.

Our meetings are held on the first Monday of each month in the garden at the Victoria Park Hotel in South Townsville. Meetings start at 7pm.

We read across a range of genres. Since formation in April 2008 we have read historical fiction, autobiography, reportage, creative non-fiction, magical realism, science fiction, romance, short stories.

We pick up our books from the CBD branch of the Townsville City Library Book Club Collection. Ask the librarian at the counter for the port readers book. They will have them in a box under the counter. If you have problems do not hesitate to contact us.

There is $1 charge to participate in our book club to cover meetup costs and we welcome new members.
