During this time of physical isolation, there is no need to be socially isolated. The Wayward Girls’ Book Club and Legal Fictions Reading Group for Legal Practitioners and Affiliates are still open for reading, wine, tea, and all the laughs that we usually have. But more than that, we are now expanding, to help foster a love of discussing stories with our younger friends and readers. See below for an outline of, and links to, the different online book clubs. The images link through to each book club’s virtual page.

The Wayward Girls’ Book Club

Last Tuesday of the Month, 8pm.

WGBC has been running out of the Northcote Home for Wayward Girls since 2017. This book club focuses on books by women, queer authors, and authors of colour. All welcome, but definitely containes mature (and immature) content.
