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:


Next Meeting

7 December, 2021 at Ivanhoe Uniting Church Hall, 19 Seddon St, Ivanhoe 3079. Enter via rear car park. This Christmas function is meant to be a relaxing evening followed by supper. There is no book presentation at this meeting.  

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.
