Each month, the Handheld Book Club will gather at an online Zoom location accessible from the comfort of your own digital device, and we will talk books with special guests, discussing one Handheld Press title each month. You will be able to send in your questions ahead of time, or type them into the Chat function as you listen to the conversation. A good time will be had by all. There may also be readings.
All those attending the Book Club will be given a special code to allow them to enjoy a pleasing discount off that title when ordering through our shop.
After you’ve been sent your ticket confirmation, you will receive the Zoom link for the event a few days beforehand.
And after it’s all over, you can watch the videos!
We have videos of our discussion of Adrift in the Middle Kingdom with translator David McKay, of the conversation about Business as Usual with Gayle Lazda of the London Review Bookshop, and from our sell-out session on British Weird with James Machin and Tim Jarvis. The video for our Book Club session on The Caravaners with Juliane Roemhild and Isobel Maddison is here. The video for our Blitz Writing Book Club with Jerry White and Kristin Bluemel is here. The Women’s Weird Book Club session with Amy Sturgis and Melissa Edmundson is here. The recording of the last Book Club for the current seaosn, on Kingdoms of Elfin, will be posted soon.
