Walking Book Group


The Walking Book Group will meet once again at York Explore, Museum Street, York at 11am on the third Thursday in the month. On October 21st, we will walk and talk about books on the theme “A Book with a Cover you find beautiful or interesting”. Just turn up – everyone is welcome!

There is no book list this month so it is up to you to select your book from a bookshop, your shelf, the library or your friend’s bookshelf. You do not even have to read it 🙂

Please note that the group has been meeting online, on Zoom at 10am, first Thursday of the month. This form of meeting will continue as it has been running since April 2020. Email alison.yorkbikebelles@gmail.com to book on and for reading suggestions.

About the Walking Book Group

A first for York, our monthly walks are a great opportunity to share and talk about interesting books you have read, meet friendly local people and discover easy walks, and the best cafes in York.

Three easy steps:

  • Read a book around a theme
  • Walk and talk about your book and hear about what others have read
  • Enjoy a chat in a cafĂ© afterwards

We offer some suggestions for books which come largely from the library catalogue and our leader’s knowledge and love of books, but there is no requirement to read any of these, feel free to bring memories of your own reading on the theme.

We rely on donations and grants to fund our activities, which are offered free of charge to York residents. If you are able to support us, please do consider a donation. You can donate here.
