BGF’s book club, Novel Connections is a six week online book club available to all people with HIV in NSW and SA. Participants will meet via Zoom (video chat service) on a weekly basis to discuss a book and connect over the shared experience of reading.
This exciting ONLINE program will go for 90mins each with ample time to chat and discuss personal thoughts and feelings about the book and selected chapters for each week. It’s a great way to read some new material whilst staying connected to your peers and community.
The next program runs from Wednesday 24th August for 6 weeks from 12pm - 1:30pm. The book we will be reading is 'How High We Go In The Dark' by Sequoia Nagamatsu.
As part of our first four Novel Connections, participants have read cult classics and acclaimed books: "The Velvet Rage" by Alan Downs, "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" by Mark Manson, "Caste: The Origins of our Discontents" by Isabel Wilkerson and Honeybee by Craig Silvey.
Please note, programs need a minimum of 6 attendants to proceed. If less than 6 participants sign up by the start date, applicants will be placed on a waitlist until the minimum level is reached.
“The weekly meeting and the clear structured approach provided a discipline I may not have mustered on my own. I found it deeply rewarding that has everything to do with the way it was presented” Milton, 61.
