Pop­u­lar club a treat for young booklovers

Joondalup Times - - OPINION -

YOUNG adult read­ers are get­ting to chat with other booklovers each month in Joondalup.

Dy­mocks Joondalup launched its free Young Adult Book Club ear­lier this year to much suc­cess.

“We saw there were many keen read­ers vis­it­ing our store and we wanted to cre­ate a hub where booklovers could gather and share their love for books and sto­ries,” em­ployee Ais­ling Law­less said.

“We have a book of the month, which we en­cour­age the club­bers to read before the event so they can join in our led dis­cus­sion, but it is not com­pul­sory to have read it to at­tend.

“We also talk about up­com­ing book re­leases, have a group chat about re­cent books we have all read and loved, have book quizzes with prizes, raf­fles, give­aways of ad­vanced read­ing copies and have spe­cial dis­counts on the night for club members.”

Tonight the club will meet fic­tion au­thor Kate McCaf­frey and next month Bren­dan Richie will at­tend.

The club runs on the first Tues­day of each month from 5.45pm to 7pm. Email joondalup@dy­mocks.com.au or call 9300 0895 for tick­ets.

Dy­mocks Joondalup’s Young Adult Book Club has proven very pop­u­lar.
