If you are an avid reader or love to discuss different authors, book genres and character plots, then the newly established Two Wells Book Club might just be for you.

Held in the Two Wells Public Library every first Wednesday of the month from 5.30pm to 6.30pm, the book club has been long awaited by some local residents, with members driving from Redbanks and Lower Light to take part in the monthly book review and discussion.

Customer and library services co-ordinator, Anne Sawtell, established the club as a way for residents to share a love of books and has been pleased by the interest shown by the community.

While initially Anne chose the first book to review, “Mercy” by Jodi Picoult, each member of the group will have an opportunity to choose a title. “The whole point of the book club is for everyone to share books,” Anne said.

“And generally the books take them out of their comfort zone.”

Lower Light resident, Christobel Crabb, has been waiting for such a club to be established for a long time and relishes the chance to read books from all sorts of genres.

“I’ve been waiting for years for a local book club,” she said.

“It exposes us to books we would not normally read.”

There are still a few places left on the book club, so be quick and contact Anne Sawtell at Two Wells Public Library on 8520 2100 or email AnneS@Mallala.sa.gov.au.

The group next meets this Wednesday, June 5 and then July 3.
