Welcome to the Sotonettes’ Book Club!
During the COVID-19 restrictions, meetings will be online using Zoom. To get access details for each meeting, please sign up to our newsletter using the form at the bottom of this page.
The Sotonettes Book Club meets on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 7pm – 9pm (except during December). There is no charge to attend and both members and non-members of the Sotonettes are very welcome. We normally meet at The Maritimo Lounge, Admiral’s Quay, Ocean Way, Southampton, SO14 3LG (see above about COVID-19 arrangements).
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.
