The Alternative Book Club

Welcome to Alt Book Club

The unconventional comedy night about books.

Most people are too busy for a traditional book club but everyone has a favourite book. Every second Wednesday, speakers from different walks of life share hilarious sets about all kinds of books (from classic works to obscure comics and from non-fiction to chic-lit).

The Alt Book Club Podcast

From unconventional comedy/book night The Alternative Book Club, comes the Alt Book Club podcast! Featuring an eclectic mix of literary content presented by our favourite guests, and hosted by Shirley Halse.
