Age UK Camden’s Book Group

Welcome to Age UK Camden's Book Group led by writer and journalist, Emily Rhodes!

Each month we discuss a new book; giving the Camden community the opportunity to come together and share ideas and opinions on the latest novel and the themes the author explores. You can be as involved as you like: join our monthly meetings, take part in our Facebook discussions, or if you just want to read a new book - that's fine too!

How it works

Simply join our dedicated Book Group mailing list, and Emily will be in touch with details on each month's book, and key discussion points.

  • You can join the discussion on the Age UK Camden Book Group Facebook group
  • We have meetings once a month at Henderson Court, The British Library and also via Zoom.   
  • If you're not able to get online regularly, we can arrange a frequent phone call with you to discuss the book.
  • Any questions? Email
