First Book Club of 2019: Join us to discuss your favourite books of 2018

We’re super excited about our first Book Club of 2019, and we know you are going to love it too! On February 27th at 8pm on our Facebook page, we will be discussing ‘the year that was’ – the bookish highlights of last year, the trends, and, most importantly, what your favourite books of 2018 were! We’ll also be delving into our newly launched list of Australia’s top books of the last year.

Most importantly, we want to hear from you, our readers! Be sure to join the discussion by commenting with your favourite books, and any questions you may have about the literary year that was!

Special guests for this Book Club will be Catherine Milne, publisher at HarperCollins, and Meg Mason, Sydney-based journalist and author.

The Book Club is streamed live to our Facebook page at 8pm (AEST) on Wednesday 27th of February 2019.
