Open book club

Meet fellow book lovers

Anyone who loves to read but struggles to commit to a book club should sign up for our new Open Book Club, to be held once a month at Hornsby Library.

Unlike normal book clubs, the Open Book Club has no prescribed reading list and instead each month has a theme for discussion so that members can read anything they like and bring it to share with other book lovers.

This fun, informal book club is the perfect way for residents to make new friends, enjoy discussing literature and discover new book titles without having to worry about struggling with books that don’t suit their tastes.

The first meeting of the club will be held on Friday 5 February at 10.30am, with members encouraged to read a book that has been made into a movie, to discuss the theme of film adaptation.

While any book that has been made into a film will be up for discussion, the library staff have some recommendations for those who are looking for ideas, including Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

For more information about the Open Book Club, or to join up, please visit hornsby.nsw.gov.au/library. Each meeting is free, although bookings are essential.
