Book Club

Do you love reading great books and talking about them? Then do we have the book club for you.

The Periplum Book Club started in 2008 and runs every seven to eight weeks. We meet at a book shop in Newtown called Better Read Than Dead (on King Street), with a different mix of people each time.

Over the years we have read masterpieces like Nabokov’s Lolita, Bronte’s Wuthering Heights and Vonegut’s Slaughterhouse 5, to name just a few. We share wine and cheese and enjoy a lively, thoughtful discussion; and it’s always a great deal of fun.
