The First Wednesday Book Club

You are invited to the inaugural meeting of the

First Wednesday Book Club
Cafe Pronto
(corner Pinjarra Road & Mandurah Terrace, Mandurah)
Wednesday 7th March from 7pm-9pm

The topic of discussion at this book club is simply “great reading”.

This is a book club for:
  • keen readers who love discussing what they are reading and have recommendations to share;
  • those who do not want to commit to reading one particular title each month;
  • busy people with limited time for reading for pleasure.  Come along and get that must-read recommendation to inspire you to treat yourself to more reading time; and
  • those who can’t promise to make it every month but would love to attend whenever they are able.

Share your opinions on the latest adaptations of books to movies, TV shows or stage productions (One for the Money, We Need to Talk about Kevin, The Slap, The White Divers of Broome to name a few).

Pass on reading material you have finished with or take away one of Mandurah Libraries’ “Read and Release” books.

Let others know about an interesting magazine you have discovered, an addictive blog you love or any other great reading.

Treat yourself to a glass of wine, a delicious dessert or tasty snacks from Cafe Pronto’s menu.  Have a fun evening sharing the joy of reading in the company of other keen readers.

Please feel free to invite your friends and pass this message on.

If you can’t make it this month then never mind, put the next First Wednesday, 4th April, into your diary now!

This book club is hosted by City of Mandurah Libraries as part of the National Year of ReadingIt is open to everyone but please RSVP to Deidre Robb on 9550 3237 or so we can advise Cafe Pronto of estimated numbers.


  1. So how was the inaugural meeting? Would love to hear about it.

  2. 20 people came. I met interesting people, enjoyed stimulating conversation, got a recommendation for a book that is making me ignore the housework, took home a free new book ... and drank wine. (Sadly I was too busy chatting to order dessert but next month I'll make sure I have that covered.) So almost like any other day for a librarian! It was fun and didn't feel like work. I'll write a proper post about it soon because people gave some very interesting recommendations for great reads.
