Penguin Book Club
Book Clubs vary in size, reading choices and how frequently they meet. The social aspect of belonging to a Book Club is a great way to relax and catch up with friends whilst also broadening your book knowledge. Dip into our highly recommended Book Club picks, download Book Club Notes, read extracts, discover our resource material and lead the discussion at your next Book Club meet up.
If you’d like to enquire about having a Penguin author at your Book Club, or in-store please email our publicity team at Publicity@au.penguingroup.com.
On behalf of my reading group Scrolls, I'd like to thank you for the recent copy you sent of Closed For Winter by Georgia Blain, along with enough complimentary double passes for the entire group to see the movie.
I'm happy to report that the group was absolutely thrilled with your generosity, and are making great use of the tickets.
Personally speaking, my husband and I were fortunate enough to catch a screening at the Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park, and were blown away by the evocative film. It certainly tackles a difficult subject with delicacy and intelligence. Having seen the film I then read the book - and it was a wonderful read. Not because of the nightmare subject matter, but because you actually became part of Elise's world, turned upside down when her sister vanished on the beach all those years before. It was an excellent read, and I'm passing it around the group at the next meeting. All are keen to read it.
Once again, thankyou so much for Penguin's generosity and community spirit. I look forward to more book club offers in the future! - Malvina from Scrolls.
