Next Meetup

Birmingham Improv Festival
A three-act bill as part of the Birmingham Improv Festival. Scenes, stories, silliness from The Kneejerks. Birmingham troupe Off Broad Street will take the suggestion of a location from the audience, paint it with words and music, and improvise a full length piece of musical theatre. A show by turns hilarious, touching, warm and joyous. LoveHard are Jacob Lovick and Tyler Harding. There’s nothing saucy. They specialise in surrealist longform narrative comedy. Buy your tickets here: https://birminghamimprovfestival.com/tuesday-30th-oct/ , then RSVP from this page. Tickets cost £14 for all three shows. This is an organised Book Club meetup, but there are also events on the 26th, 27th and 31st October. Contact Louise Stringer if you're interested in these.

What we're about

Our book discussion evening is always on the second Tuesday of the month, when we share views and gain new insights into our chosen book. This is a moderated discussion, and everyone has the chance to contribute. The discussion is often lively, but never gets personal! All views and opinions are respected.

We love to socialise and new members are always welcome. There's plenty of time to get to know the rest of the group before, during and after the meeting. There are some notes to help you here (https://www.dropbox.com/s/57qu1lw9mp27lp5/Notes%20for%20New%20Members.docx?dl=0).

As well as our monthly book discussion, we have regular theatre nights and social events. Suggestions for nights out are always welcome.

Anyone who loves reading books and talking about them should join us. Books are always chosen by a democratic vote. This often leads us to some surprising places, but everyone finds it rewarding to read books that they might not have otherwise picked up.

For a list of the books we have read so far, look here (https://www.dropbox.com/s/6r44pv6f49epbg0/Birmingham%20Book%20Club%20meeting%20list.docx?dl=0). Although there is a wide variety, we tend to mostly read fiction of a middle- to highbrow quality.
