This will be the last Hobart Silent Book Club for 2023. Keep an eye out for more information on events in 2024.
The first Silent Book Club started in a local bar in San Francisco in 2012 by a couple of friends, Guinevere de la Mare and Laura Gluhanich. There are now Silent Book Club chapters all over the world. There are no ‘reading books’ prescribed: you simply bring a book you are reading, or want to read, and then have an hour of uninterrupted reading time. There is no requirement for you to discuss your book with anyone either.
Created for introverts, there is no pressure to speak, converse, or cringe through awkward small talk. Engage as much or as little as you like. Silent Book Club is about community: everyone is welcome, and anyone can join.
The Hobart Silent Book Club meets on the fourth Friday of each month at Fullers in the Afterword Cafe.
Reading begins at 5.30pm and finishes at 6.30pm.
The Afterword Cafe will be open for hot drinks until 5.30pm; wine and soft drinks available until 6.00pm.
This is a free event.
