Book Society

  • Book


Everyone is welcome to The University of Winchester’s new Book Society!! We offer this group as an antidote to the busy, drink-heavy university culture and those who wish can come along to have a good time, meet some new people, and explore some new literature.

We meet every two weeks: once to discuss that month’s book and once to be social and hang out in a chill environment including everything from movies based on books to literary board games. As many other societies are based on going out and drinking until your liver cries for help, we offer Book Society as an alternative where anyone and everyone is welcome to enjoy teas, coffees, and biscuits while discussing our well-loved and new-found literary picks (even if you didn’t have time to finish that month’s book). So, if enjoy reading, talking about reading, or just hanging out in chill company, join us in spending some quality time with good literature and good friends.

Some book themes may be those such as:

·         Mystery

·         WWI for the centenary

·         Banned books

Some social themes may be:

·         Murder mystery

·         World Book Day

·         Quiz night
