The Book Society is a club for professionals in the book trade, publishers, booksellers, literary agents, librarians and authors. All members are welcome to propose new candidates for future election to the Society.

The Book Society meets up to eight times a year. At each dinner a speaker is invited to address the Society. The Society’s purpose is to encourage contacts and understanding between the various elements that make up the book trade.

The annual membership fee for 2022 is £55.00.
