The Galley Book club is an informal monthly gathering for young readers where we talk about books and share snacks and recommendations ~ it’s the perfect opportunity for budding bibliophiles to make new discoveries and new friends!
We ask that for each gathering you bring along a wee review of a new or an all-time favourite book (just a few sentences will do) which we will put up on our wall so that your recommendations can help other readers find great books! We’ll talk a little about the books we love (and those we haven’t) and at the end we’ll send you all home with a Galley: a book that’s not even published yet.
The book club is aimed at readers aged 8-11, although confident readers aged 7 are also welcome.
We would encourage younger readers who are on their first chapter books to wait until they are 7 and reading confidently before joining us – there’s no need to rush! Sadly we do not receive books from publishers for such young readers and in our experience little ones can feel ever so slightly out of place.
