Book Club

Do you enjoy reading? Do you like to try new books and genres?

Our free Book Club is open to all current and former Loughborough University students and staff, with meetings approximately every six weeks.

We mostly read fiction, but we take suggestions from members and nothing is off limits. The group is a chance to share and discuss a good read in a relaxed environment, with members volunteering to take it in turns to chair the meeting. For the time being, the group continues to meet online.

New members are welcome to join at any time. To join our Book Club, please email Your email must not have a title in the subject line and the email text must only say: subscribe luartsbookgroup

Following this you will receive email confirmation of your subscription with further information. From then on you will receive all emails sent to the group, including dates of future meetings, book choices and login details for the online meetings. Please join the mailing list at least 48 hours prior to the meeting date to make sure you receive the login details in time.
