Eller Coffee Book Club

 

For more than six years, book lovers have been meeting up at Eller Coffee in Ossett on the second Tuesday of the month at 7pm, to chat about the book of the month.  If you’d like to join the book club, just check out the latest book we are reading and pop along.  There’s no membership or fee and its informal and friendly.  You can buy copies in the shop, in which case your first coffee is free.  Or feel free to bring your own copy. We’ve also been fortunate enough to welcome established authors such as David Peace and Stephen May to talk about their work.

We’ve read 75 books as a club (that we can remember) and they are listed below.  We score the books and the most popular ever was Snowchild by Eowyn Ivey

In June we will be discussing A Year of Marvellous Ways.  Copies are sold out but you are welcome to join us and bring your own.
