THE ALT BOOK CLUB

July 10

Welcome to an unconventional book/comedy night where there is absolutely NO required reading – unless you want to!

Most people are too busy for a traditional book club but everyone has a favourite book… Each month we’ll be sharing a variety of hilarious sets about all kinds of books (from classic works to obscure comics and from non-fiction to chic-lit).

Last month we covered all sorts of unexpected topics: Nick Buss took us through the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, Michael Julien-Black spoke about ADHD and the effect of a diagnosis, Shirley Halse explored her character in Coram Boy, Max Grunewald explored the many reasons why H. P. Lovecraft is, at best, problematic, Lisa Whittard talked about the tyranny of rules in Oi Cat, and Nick Page took us on safari through books from Africa.

So come and join our alternative book club to find out June’s roguest recommendations from…
