More about the Book Club…
For our first outing, we’ll be reading Hamlet. There’s a good chance you’ve encountered this play before – but analyzing it as a playwright is an entirely different experience. We’ll be approaching the text from a writer’s perspective to look at why it works and has continued to fascinate generations of theatremakers and audiences.
How does it work?
All you need to do is read the play and come on over to our Members Facebook Group to join the discussion! Book club threads will be marked with the hashtag #bookclub, so it will be easy to find the discussion.
When does it start?
We’re giving you two weeks to read the play, and then discussion will start at lunchtime on Friday 15 September 2017. Don’t worry if you haven’t finished the play by then, we’ll be starting at the beginning with our discussion, so there will still be a lot that you can get out of it.
However, we can’t be held liable for any spoilers, so if this is something that will bother you, probably best to finish the play before the book club starts.
We’ll be discussing the play in the Facebook Group throughout the rest of the month of September, so if there’s a question or a topic you want to explore with a group of writers, this is the perfect opportunity.

This is a great idea – but for those of us who don’t use facebook, for very good reasons, is there no way to participate?
Hi Bridget, Unfortunately not at this time! Facebook is a platform that’s ideally designed to manage chats and discussion, which is why we’ve located it there. To build a new platform of our own is beyond what we can manage at this time. I do know some people who have a Facebook that they use for work only, so that’s one option. We will definitely keep our eyes peeled for opportunities to involve folks who prefer to stay off social media.
