Next Meetup

July 2018 Book Club Meeting
After a short break, we resume in July. The winner of the poll by a wide margin is George Orwell's classic on destitution "Down and out in London and Paris". Originally published in 1933, it is a memoir of the author's experiences as a low-paid restaurant worker in Paris and then in London as a tramp, moving from hostel to hostel. Despite the book being 85 years old, it no doubt has much resonance today. I look forward to seeing you in July.

    What we're about

    We are a Brighton based book club and we concentrate exclusively on non-fiction.

    Non-fiction is an enormously wide "genre" and to date our choices have included but not been limited to art, economics, culture, politics, history, religion, biographies, science, feminism, philosophy, medicine and even a celebrity memoir! We meet monthly on the last Thursday of each month, except at Christmas, although we do try to organise a small Xmas party.

    The format is simple. Members attending the book club can put books forward, which then go into a poll. All members can vote in the poll. Each month we read the winning book, then turn up in person to discuss it.

    Be prepared for some lively debate and we look forward to seeing you!
