Meet other book lovers, discuss fascinating topics and expand your world. Our monthly book club features guest speakers and books handpicked from IFOA programming. Meetings are informal and relaxed – even if you don’t have time to finish the book, come for the chat! We will have exciting guest speakers and book giveaways.

Book club members meet every third Wednesday of the month from 6-7:15pm in the Tea Room of York Quay Centre (235 Queens Quay West). Ask security to buzz you up to the 3rd floor, and when you get off the elevator, turn left. There will be coffee!

Registrants will receive a one-year supporter subscription to the IFOA weekly series, or an additional one-year extension to an existing subscription. You will also receive one free ticket to any IFOA event in which a Book Club author appears.

Hosted by Jen Tindall, artistic associate at IFOA. Jen helps to program the IFOA weekly series as well as the annual International Festival of Authors in the fall (October 24 – November 3, 2013).
