Welcome

these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”

Setting the Tone

I made this: Avid Reader at 6:18 pm



In the year and a half I've been running these book clubs across Leeds, its been inspiring to meet so many wonderful people - from all around the country and of varying ages, genders, orientations - coming together to talk about books.


One of the defining features (and I've mentioned this here) is that everyone has always engaged with the three book clubs in a very positive and respectful way. Even where opinions differ wildly, we always keep the chatter friendly and open.


I'm aware that there has been a nasty interaction at one of our fellow social-clubs in Leeds. While I don't expect anything like that to happen with us; I think it's important to offer the following reassurance, hopefully without getting all sanctimonious. 


Leeds Book Club is a safe environment. 


Anyone who sets out to make another person uncomfortable or threatened will be asked to leave.


Right. That's that then. Back to the books!
