About us

Welcome to the Exeter Book Group website!

We are a friendly book group that meets once a month in Exeter. The group is open to everyone and free to join. We aim to have a sociable and informal discussion about a book that we've all read, before picking the next book to read. We'd love to see you at our next meeting!

Next meeting: Our next meeting will be at the City Gate, in Exeter, at 8pm on Wednesday 6th November 2019. We will be discussing "
Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott. The book for our December meeting will be “How to Stop Time” by Matt Haig

Please bring a suggestion for what you'd like to read next!

Mailing list: If you would like to join the group, please sign up to our mailing list by sending an email to exebookclub@outlook.com, which will add you to the mailing list and allow you to keep in the loop. 

We are also on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/exeterbookclub/ It's the easiest way to keep up to date about when and where we'll be meeting, plus the occasional invitation to social events.
