Join the Loreto Past Pupils’ Book Club, meeting once per school term.
Enjoy catching up with old friends over a glass of wine and discussing shared values from our Loreto education. Explore Mary Ward virtues related to the book themes in a friendly group setting. Coorparoo past pupil Jen Stephens coordinates the club and is passionate about literature, having managed an international bookstore in Prague and now working at Avid Reader. Her love for books and involvement in early literacy programs inform her understanding of the importance of reading.
You are warmly invited to join our Loreto Community Book Club for an evening of lively discussion of Fellowship Point by Alice Elliott Dark. It is a beautifully woven and intelligent story of a deep, nuanced, enduring and utterly delightful 80-year friendship between characters Agnes and Polly, with interesting twists and contemporary themes explored. These characters keep you the most wonderful company and become literary friends to treasure.
This term we will meet at Avid Reader in West End with the book club discussion facilitated by Avid Reader Book Clubs Manager, and Loreto past pupil, Jennifer Stephens. New members, past pupils, teachers or current parents, are always welcome. If you haven’t managed to finish the book, or you would like to just come and see what the Loreto Book Club is like, you are most welcome.
When you purchase your book club book from Avid Reader, the bookshop donates 10% to the Loreto College Library.
When: Thursday 25 May – 6.00pm for 6.30pm start
Where: Avid Reader, 193 Boundary Street, West End.
RSVP: Wednesday 24 May at 3.00pm
