Melbourne’s Longest Running Book Club

We are a literary book club based in Ivanhoe, in the north-east of Melbourne. We meet monthly (March to December) on Tuesday nights to discuss important and interesting texts.

We welcome new members. If you love reading, sharing ideas and discussing books – get in touch or come to our next meeting. Everyone is welcome.

During the winter months of June, July and August our meetings will be conducted via Zoom.

The December meetings are end-of-year social gatherings. There is no book presentation for that month.

Our group has been meeting continuously since 1920. Read more about our history here.  You could also listen to this podcast to learn more about our history:


Next Meeting

1 March, 2022 at Ivanhoe Library and Community Hub (ILCH), 275 Upper Heidelberg Rd, Ivanhoe 3079. Meeting commences at 7pm; finishes no later than 8.45pm.  

N.B. If you would like to participate in our book club, get in touch.

Our meetings are quite structured. We begin with a short presentation on the month’s book, presented by a Reading Circle member.  The meeting is then opened to everyone for questions and discussion.

We value everyone’s voice and represent a diversity of ages and opinions.
