The WOMAN ZONE Book Club - with titles and talk by, for and about women.
The WomanZoneBookClubis a really rich, rewarding opportunity for some lively discussion, debate and discovery, sharing books from our shelves crammed with titles for, by and about women, both local and international. Each month we invite a Guest Author to come and talk for around 40 mins or so - always fascinating to get author insights and great to be able to ask questions direct. We meet on the second Saturday of every month from 14h00 to 16h00 at the Woman Zone Library at the Artscape Theatre, ground floor next to the Box Office. All are welcome at any meeting.
How it works: We review the books borrowed last month and, over a cup of tea or coffee, chat about great reads and meet our Guest Author. Even if you haven't been before you can tell us what's on your bedside table. Then we browse the shelves of the Woman's Library and choose an enticing title (up to 3 per person) to borrow for the next month and return.
