Whistles Book Club: Join Today

Here at Whistles, we are a team of avid readers, and we know that you are too.

Whistles Book Club introduces of-the-moment books and the authors behind them for evenings of live readings and in-depth conversations so we can delve deeper into our favourite literature. So far, we’ve enjoyed the company of Liv Little and her debut novel Rosewater, as well as a riveting conversation between authors Lauren John Joseph, Juno Dawson, and Torrey Peters. Alongside an audience Q&A, our online literary events are hosted by of-the-moment journalists and writers, including esteemed Head of Editorial at Black Ballad, Jendella Benson, author of The Transgender Issue, Shon Faye, host of The Guardian’s Pop Culture podcast, Chanté Joseph, making for an evening of inspiring conversations.

Many of our Book Clubs are hosted on Instagram Live or in-person with a pay-what-you-can donation to one of our chosen charity partners. So far, we’ve supported Refuge, The Trussell Trust, New Life and AKT.

Be the first to hear more about our future literary events, exclusive book content, reviews and interviews with your favourite authors by following us on Instagram.
