Book Group at the Dock Cafe, Belfast

Who are you?

A group of reading enthusiasts randomly drawn together through frequenting the only community "honesty box"cafe in Belfast, if not the country!

How did you get started?

Some of us met up in the cafe and, realising we had a mutual passion and an obvious venue, began to meet monthly and spread the word.

How long have you been going?

We have been meeting for 18 months now.

Where and how often do you meet?

We meet in the Dock Cafe, Titanic Quarter in Belfast, monthly on a Saturday afternoon at 3pm

What sort of books do you read?

We read mostly popular fiction.

Which books have provoked the best discussion?

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and Transatlantic by Colum McCann have generated good discussions recently. Also The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.

What was your worst read?

Hard to say, though Stoner by John Williams proved to be too dry a read for some. One of the only books not finished by the majority of the group Others thought the writing was genius and thoroughly enjoyed it, so not the worst for all.

Anything else?

We are open to anyone who wants to call in. Drop us an email and we can add you to our mailing list to confirm dates and reading list.
