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.
