BingeBooks Book Club author chats

BingeBooks Book Club

Welcome to the BingeBooks Book Club - your chance to meet the author!

We're a group of authors and readers who gather online each month to discuss a bestselling book in a free interactive video chat with the author. It's a great way to discover new authors, or get to know favorite authors better.

Below you'll find links to our forthcoming chats - and you can watch all our past author chats with a video of each event.

Please join our mailing list so you don't miss out on upcoming events. And remember to join the BingeBooks Book Club group to ask questions, share ideas or comment on the book you're reading.
