What we'll do

Do you love books?

Find yourself transported several lightyears away reading that favourite novel of yours?

Do you consider yourself a book worm? Or, a book worm of sorts? We are launching the Brisbane Geek Book Club, a book club that will meet monthly here in Brisbane! The book club will meet at various cafe's and other venues where we can discuss everything about our favourite books, what books we have read, share books, as well as the Book of the Month! The book club will encompass a relaxed atmosphere, where members can talk to eachother about books in general. As part of the event, the book of the month will be discussed, but will not be mandatory to attend. For those who did not read the book of the month, the discussion will be a good insight or review of the book in question.

The book club will encompass books of various genres, from Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Historical Fiction, and even comics, it will be a great place to discuss your literary adventures with other like-minded book worms!

Book of the Month!

Each month, we we will be having a 'book of the month', which will be a book where members, if they want to join in on the book of the month, will be given a title to read between book club meetups.

This meet-up we are discussing 'Obernewtyn' by Isobelle Carmody. In a world struggling back from the brink of apocalypse, life is harsh. But for Elspeth Gordie, born with enhanced mental abilities that would see her sterilised or burned if discovered, it is also dangerous. There is only survival by secrecy, and so she determines never to use her forbidden powers. But it is as if they have their own imperative, and their use inevitably brings her to the attention of the totalitarian Council that rules the Land . . .
