Not your average book club

Book Club

The Edge hasn’t ventured into book-club territory before, but we thought it was about time that we did – with an Edge spin, of course!

The Edge book club will be more than turning pages. Over three Monday nights in the month of July (and one Wednesday in August!), we’ll discuss song lyrics, a well-known novel, an award-winning graphic novel, and a film, through the lens of Apocalypse.

But, that’s Apocalypse in the true sense of the word.

Wikipedia“an uncovering” – a disclosure of knowledge or revelation. In religious contexts it is usually a disclosure of something hidden, “a vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities”


Kicking off the limited-run series is the songs and lyrics book club, on Monday 10 July. There will be live music, recorded music, snacks, conversation and YOU!

Come and join in on the conversation! There is no pre-requisite to play until the end. Join us for one meetup, or all four, and see what comes of a community-led, apocalyptic showcase to be revealed later in the year.
