Preston Book Group was founded in January 2018 as Lucy hoped to meet like-minded people who are interested in attending book talks and literature events.

Although she found other book clubs in the area, she wanted an online community as well as a social group to ensure that people could still contribute, even if they had missed a meeting.

The book group now has around 25 people regularly attending meetings, while the Facebook community has over 200 members.

Preston Book Group meet on the last Tuesday of every month at UCLan’s Harrington Building Social Space (new members are advised to check social media as time and venue occasionally change).

The group welcomes new members and is open to everyone aged 16 and above. Their next meeting takes place on 30th July, where they will be discussing, A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson.

On the 27th of August, 6pm – 7:30pm Preston Book Group will celebrate the launch of Margret Atwood’s latest book, The Testaments, a sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale. The event is at Preston Waterstones, where there will be a discussion on Atwood’s books and a quiz. There will also be refreshments available.
