BOOK CLUB

BFBC 2019


Our in store Between Friends Book Club runs for six months each year. 

Our objective is to create an experience in which our members can get to know one another, make new friends, and enjoy meaningful discussion about some great books.  

In 2019:

TUESDAY NIGHT FICTION GROUP

  • Each evening will start with a large group discussion before members are split into smaller groups for more in depth discussions.  Farrells staff will provide some facilitation and moderation of group discussions.  Discussions will implicitly involve spoilers.   

  • $65 membership fee (6 sessions, includes wine and nibbles each month).

  • Members may purchase their book club book each month at a 10% discount (plus loyalty points if signed up to our Loyalty Program).  Books will be made available one month prior to each session.

We keep a register of anyone interested in participating in our book club – please email us at events@farrells.com.au or leave your details in store if you would like us to add your name to the list of interested parties.  Notification of bookings opening each year will first be given exclusively to those on the interested parties list, with a more general announcement issued only if places are still available.  You can add your name to the list at any time during the year and we will notify you when our next group is commencing.

In the interests of offering this experience to as many in the community as possible, we choose to offer places each year firstly to new members. At the end of each year we actively encourage our outgoing members to maintain their new book club friendships by continuing their own independent book clubs outside of the store.  There are currently 5 ongoing book clubs that have arisen out of our 2017 and 2018 membership.

For any questions about our Book Club, please call us on 03 5975 5034.
