Melbourne’s Longest Running Book Club

We are a literary book club based in Ivanhoe, in the north-east of Melbourne. We meet monthly 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.

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:
