Gutter Bookshop Bookclub Dates

We currently run 5 bookclubs each month in The Gutter Bookshop. The Classics Bookclub runs on the 2nd Thursday of each month 6-7pm, the Third Thursday Bookclub runs on the 3rd Thursday of each month (surprisingly!) 6-7pm, the Gutter Bookshop Bookclub runs on the 4th Thursday of each month 6-7pm. Our ‘Get Active’ Bookclub for the Retired Over-55s is run in conjunction with Temple Bar Cultural Trust and takes place 11am-Noon on the 4th Thursday of each month.

As of March 2015, our new shop in Dalkey has started its own bookclub on the first Wednesday of each month running 6-7pm – places were initially offered to local customers who had signed up to our Dalkey Newsletter in the shop. As the bookclub becomes established and more spaces become available we will offer places via our regular newsletter.
