Millennials and Friends is a book club aimed at readers 18-40 who want to expand and challenge their reading habits, meet new people and enjoy a relaxed chat about all things literature. Our focus is on contemporary fiction (though we may occasionally stray to essay and memoir), and we’re especially interested in reading books by authors from diverse backgrounds who have something to say about the current moment.

Millennials and Friends Book Club meets on the last Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each month, at 6pm.

For more information, or to register your interest, contact Madeleine.
