The UCL Book Club is where those who love reading can gather and discuss books, short stories, poems, and more. We pride ourselves on being an all-inclusive group that welcomes everyone who wishes to discuss their favourite reads or get recommendations from others. You don't have to know much about books to join us; just be ready to speak your mind and to listen to others. 

On a weekly basis, we will be holding informal and relaxed discussions about anything from short stories, poems, broad literary themes or ideas – our intention is not to restrict members to reading specific books, but rather bring into the discussion any read that might at all be relevant. However, you might just find others with similar reading interests and organise your own book-specific discussions together!

Beyond the usual book club meetings, our social activities may include visiting independent bookshops, pubs, and museums, catching movie screenings of book adaptations, and book swaps. Every suggestion of yours is more than welcomed!

The committee also keeps an eye out for any literary events going on in London. Whether reading and discussing books is something you've done for a while, or if you are only beginning to discover the wonderful world of reading, we are sure that the Book Club is the right place for you to unwind, make new friends, and discover the literary London!
