We run a monthly Book Club which, in collaboration with Give a Book, provides free books to keep and discuss.

Please note that the Book Club sessions will take place online. You can sign up with the button above. 

The OTR Book Club is a safe place for young people to gather and meet like-minded book-lovers, as well as read titles they may not have previously considered.

The Book Club runs on the last Monday of each month. Members can suggest 3 books each, which run in a Doodle poll for the group to vote on our monthly book.

"Attending the group has encouraged me to do more of the things I am passionate about such as starting my own book review blog which I wouldn’t have done without Book Club".
