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 alternate between being online and in person. 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 at 6pm-7.30pm. Prior to the meeting members suggest books they want to read each month, and a poll is created from these suggestions for the group to vote on our monthly book. The chosen book is then procured via our Give a Book charity and book club members pick up a free copy they can read and keep. We vote on various genres and books each month so sometimes you get to read your own favourites, and other times something new that others recommended.

"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".
"Being part of Book Club helped me feel less isolated during the lockdown"
