The Galley Bookclub is our ongoing informal monthly gathering for young readers, where we talk about books, and share snacks and recommendations, it’s the perfect opportunity for budding book-lovers to make new discoveries in literature and new friends!
At the club we talk a little about the books we love (and those we haven’t!) and at the end we’ll send you away with an individual Galley: a book that is yet to be published. We ask that each month you bring along a review of the Galley book that we give you (or another that you love) and we’ll pop it in to our growing collection of brilliant reviews in our scrap-book, which can be found in the Children’s section.
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 they can feel ever so slightly out of place.
