We are very excited to announce that applications are now open for new members of the Curtis Brown Book Group!
We’ve been running since January this year, and have read books as diverse as The Ship by Antonia Honeywell, The Museum of Things Left Behind by Seni Glaister, Letters to the Lost by Iona Grey and Barbarians by Tim Glencross – and we’ve got some brilliant books lined up for the next six months. Where previously we’ve featured two books, we’re now going to just have one book a month, with thirty members, so we’d love to hear from you about why you’d like to be a member.
How does it work? Well, at the beginning of each month, we send you a book we have selected by a Curtis Brown or Conville and Walsh author. Throughout the month, we’ll be tweeting about the book and posting exclusive content about it on our blog, and at the end of the month you’ll get to have an exclusive online chat with the author about the book for an hour over a lunchtime. If you can’t make it at the time, there’s the opportunity to post questions before the chat and check back later, so you won’t miss out. We then ask that you review the book around publication, on anywhere from Amazon to your own blog to Good Reads.
So, if you’d like to apply to be one of our members, all you need to do is email us with a short paragraph saying why, and what you feel you could bring to the group, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, you can email them to us there, or ask us on twitter, @CBBookGroup.
Previous members are welcome to re-apply. Please note that we can only accept members in the UK. Applications close on June 17th.
