Literature lovers can look forward to some great reads and compelling conversation this year, with book clubs starting up again at the Southside Library and the Mount Morgan Library.
Chair of Community Services Committee Councillor Rose Swadling said the book clubs are open to anyone.
“Book clubs are a fantastic thing to be part of,” said Cr Swadling.
“They’re a great way to meet new people, discover new authors, and hear different perspectives that might surprise you.
“The Southside Library has adopted a decidedly gastronomical theme this year, with titles like The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, Pomegranate Soup, and An Appetite for Violets up for discussion.
“In Mount Morgan the Silver Wattle book club is set to meet on Monday 17 February to discuss the novel Cloudstreet, written by acclaimed Australian author Tim Winton. Their book list this year includes a range of titles from classics to modern thrillers.
“Many of the books are also available to listen to or read digitally via Borrowbox.
“Anybody is welcome at either book club, just read the book that is scheduled to be discussed and come along for a great chat with other keen booklovers!”
The first Southside Library book club for 2020 is scheduled for Wednesday 12 February at 4pm. The group will be discussing The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender.
The Silver Wattle book club will meet next at the Mount Morgan Library on Monday 17 February at 2.00pm.
