About Book Club

Our free Book Club meets online every six weeks and is open to all current Loughborough University students and current and former staff, including those from our London campus.

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 subscribe to our mailing list (which uses JISC-mail) using the link below.

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.

Our virtual meetings take place via Zoom. You do not need a Zoom account in order to take part but you should allow yourself a few minutes extra to download the free browser if you haven't used it before. If you do want to create an account and familiarise yourself with Zoom's features in advance then you can sign up here.

All our Zoom events have automatic closed captions - you can turn these on or off yourself during the event by clicking on CC at the bottom of the screen.

If you have any access requirements or anything you would like us to be aware of when running the event, please let us know in advance by emailing and we will do our best to accommodate them.

Book Club members Survey

We want to ensure that our Book Club has an active membership and that everyone is happy with the way it operates. As such, we have compiled a small survey that we would be grateful if Book Club members could complete via the button below. It should only take 5 minutes and we would like responses by midday on Wednesday 3 May 2023.
