Sotonettes Book Club

Welcome to the Sotonettes’ Book Club!

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 21st Novmber when we will be discussing ‘The Summer Book’ by Tove Jansson. We will be meeting in the Maritimo Lounge, in Ocean Village from 7pm until 9pm.

The Sotonettes Book Club meets on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 7pm – 9pm (except during December). The book club is for Sotonettes members and our invited guests.

The Book Club has a general ‘female’ theme such as female authors and leading characters, and we are always open to suggestions! We plan on mixing things up a bit, from classics to contemporary, across a range of genres.

We don’t mind if you haven’t finished the book, seen a film version, or are just curious to find out more.

If you have any questions then you can drop a message to Penny by emailing her at
