The Edge POP CULTURE Book Club

The Edge’s first book club series was such a wild success, that we’ve decided to offer Part II. Sticking with the not your average book club style, we’d like to introduce you to the POP CULTURE Book Club!


Through the months of September, October and November we’ll be dedicating the third and fourth Mondays of the month to exploring popular culture through different media: novels, games, short-film, TV series, and comic books.

Join us for one, some, or all of them!


To kick off the series in September we will be looking at the chilling novel The Handmaid’s Tale.  Whether you’ve read the book, or just dived into the TV series on SBS, come and join us!
