Welcome to the Century House Book Club page.

Fees: $5.00 annually per member

When We Meet: the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 10 am till noon

Club Information: The Book Club has been in existence only about a year. It started when a few avid readers got together to choose a book, read it, and then meet monthly to discuss that book. As more people heard about it, the group grew.

The selected books are chosen from a list prepared by the New Westminster Library. The Library stocks 10 copies of the books listed, so the group is limited to 10 members. If enough people are interested, another group can be formed. Some recent selections include: ‘Obasan’ by Joy Kogawa, and ‘The Cellist of Sarajevo’ by Steven Galloway (a New Westminster author).

Everyone participates in the discussions, adding their own unique perspective on the storyline, the characters, the success of the writer in engaging interest, etc. Not everyone likes every book so the discussions can be quite spirited but always are conducted with respect for all points of view.
