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 to get involved:

  1. Take a look at the dates and locations below to find a book club close to you.
  2. To join, email or just come along!
