What happens when social animals like ourselves are forced to keep distance from each other? The present scenario is a Catch-22 situation. If you flout social distancing norms, you risk contracting COVID, but if you put a halt to socialising, you risk losing your mind! We certainly don’t want that for you!

Each session will be moderated by a loved author, editor, publisher, or another ardent reader, and you will join a community of readers in the comfort of your home.
A weekly catch up where we get together virtually to read anything we want - silently.
Each week, we announce a theme and a moderator for our book club catch up. Moderators could be authors, publishers, editors, or just ardent readers. They will lead the book club that week.
