Book Chat Friday

The Rockdale Readers Group have recently started meeting to discuss books they've been reading through out the month. Book chat Fridays happen on the first Friday of the month at 5.30pm. It is an informal discussion about books and reading in general. We occasionally organise book swaps to introduce us to new authors.

Anyone who has an interest in books and talking about them is most welcome.

The next meeting will be on Friday 2 October at 5.30 in the Committee Room. We will discuss our favourite 19th Century classic.

If you are interested in joining please contact Natalie on 9562 1821
