BOOK CLUB

Our in store Between Friends Book Club runs over winter each year. 

Numbers are very limited due to the small amount of space we have and our objective of creating an environment in which our members can make new friends, get to know one another and enjoy meaningful discussion about some great new books.  


PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL PLACES FOR THE 2018 BOOK CLUB HAVE NOW BEEN FILLED.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN THE WAITING LIST, PLEASE EMAIL events@farrells.com.au.  

In 2018:

We revisit our format each year. This year:

  • we will be focusing on new release fiction titles, with two titles selected each month.  Each member will be allocated a single title to read, but will be exposed to one other they may then be inspired to read. We will endeavour to provide members with 4 weeks in which to read their allocated title each month;

  • meetings will be held on Tuesday evenings mid month from May to October (specific dates provided to members);

  • discussions will be held in both small and large group formats, with some input by Farrell’s staff.  Small group discussions will implicitly involve spoilers as members will be expected to have finished reading their allocated book.  Large group discussions will be at a more general level where the objective is to provide a high level idea about the title members did not read that month.  

  • costs include a $45 membership fee (covering 6 sessions) plus the book cost each month – members are offered a 20% discount on their allocated title each month (note that loyalty program points cannot be collected for discounted purchases).  


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 3 ongoing book clubs that have arisen out of our 2017 membership.

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 or 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.

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