NOT YOUR AVERAGE 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

Rachael Bartram, Flying Car, 2015, Collage

The Edge book club will be more than turning pages. Over three Monday nights in the month of July (and one Wednesday in August), The Edge team will 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: Ancient Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apokálypsis, from ἀπό and καλύπτω, literally meaning “an uncovering”) is 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 hopefully, 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 maybe hang in there to see what comes of an apocalyptic climax later in the year.

Find out more and Register.
