Brisbane Book Club, September 2018 Meetup
Theme: The Big Issue Short Story Month Every year in August "The Big Issue" runs a special fiction edition. This edition is full of short stories. With this yearly special edition, it's become tradition at the Brisbane Bookclub to support the Big Issue for the September meeting. The Big Issue is a fortnightly magazine sold on the streets of cities across Australia and the UK. The magazine is sold by those needing an income to make an income. The Big Issue The Big Issue enables those who are marginalised, homeless and disadvantaged people change their lives. So this month - if you are around the streets of Brisbane, grab a copy of the Big Issue and read one, a few or all of the stories. If you can't get a copy of the Big Issue - this month is the month of short stories so all you need to do is find a short story to read. All gold coin donations (usually used to cover the meetup site fees) will be donated to the Big Issue.

What we're about

Celebrating 10 years of books in 2018 - to our current and past members, thank you for sharing your love of reading!

Meet kindred book lovers in a local Meetup Book Club.

Fiction or non-fiction, paperback or hardcover, bring the books you love to share!

We work on the basis of a theme rather than a specific book. Sometimes everyone brings a different book, sometimes we all read the same book, sometimes we agree that we love a book, and sometimes we disagree! Whatever the theme and whether a book is loved or loathed, our meetup is always full of lively discussion and a few laughs!

We meet on the 1st Monday of every month in the Brisbane Square Library (unless it's a public holiday) and we try and schedule a social meet ups on a regular basis.

A gold coin donation at the meeting is most appreciated to help cover the Meetup website fees.

To keep the group manageable if you are inactive for more that 12 months on the group page, I do remove you. But you are welcome to come back anytime. Please do!
