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

The first meeting for 2021 will be held via ZOOM. A link will be emailed to current and prospective members prior to March 2.
Meeting time: 7.00pm – 8.45pm
It is hoped that future meetings will be conducted in person at the Ivanhoe Library and Cultural Hub (ILCH), 275 Upper Heidelberg Rd, Ivanhoe. This venue is yet to be confirmed.

 ILCH is a five minute  walk from Ivanhoe train station on the Hurstbridge Line
Parking will be available at ILCH.

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.
