Book Clubs

Here at Griffin Books we currently run SIX Book Clubs for adults and children! Read on to find out more...

Adult Book Clubs

Due to popular demand, we now host three Book Clubs for adults. The sessions take place in the shop on a Tuesday evening. The price (which varies slightly each month depending on the RRP of the title we're reading), includes a copy of the book and a glass of wine. Places are limited, however please do get in touch if you're interested in joining our growing book club community.   

Finding Poetry Book Club

Poetry lovers rejoice! We now run a dedicated poetry book club, which is led by poet and Penarth resident Stephen Payne. The sessions take place via Zoom video call every fourth Tuesday of the month, from 7.30-9.30 pm. Each month, there will be a set book for discussion. The session will begin with a short introduction from Stephen; this might be an introduction to the poet, or to one aspect of the poet’s work or a close reading of one illustrative poem.

Book Clubs for Children and Teens

We run two lively Book Clubs for children and young people. Our Kids' Book Club is aimed at 9-12 year-olds (in school years 5, 6 & 7), and our Teen Book Club is aimed at young readers aged 12-15 (in school years 8, 9 & 10). The book clubs meet in the shop on the second Thursday of the month (Kids: 6.00 - 7.00 pm / Teen: 7.15 - 8.15 pm). The price (which varies each month depending on the RRP of the title we're reading) includes a copy of the book, refreshments and the session itself. The sessions are friendly and inclusive, and perfect for any young person who loves books and discovering new stories.

Community Book Club Discount

We also offer a 20% discount to Book Clubs run in the community when buying FIVE or more copies of the same book in one transaction. This is a great opportunity to support a small independent business while getting together with friends to talk about something we all love - books! Collection and postage options available.
