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 5th December 2018.

Book: We will be discussing "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer. The book for our January meeting will be “Shades of Grey” by Jasper Fforde.

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.
