Book club set to welcome two authors

Where: Cafe W, Waterstones, Gloucester

When: Fortnightly on Sunday afternoons, 2pm-3pm

A Gloucester-based book club for young adults is set to welcome two special guests over the next few weeks.

Waterstones Gloucester's YA Book Club is preparing for visits from Gabriel Dylan, author of Whiteout, on Sunday, February 17, and Tracy Darnton, author of The Truth About Lies, on Sunday, March 3.

Gabriel Dylan is a first-time author who teaches English at St Peter's in Gloucester. He is also planning to join the group for Tracy Darnton's visit.

They will tell the group about the journey they made to became an author, answer any questions and join members for a cuppa, cake and maybe some memory games.

The book club, which meets at Cafe W, upstairs in Waterstones Gloucester, from 2-3pm every other Sunday, is always on the lookout for new members. It's open to teens and young adults who enjoy reading and is ideal for students in Gloucestershire.

Bethany Winter, one of the club's organisers, said: "Newcomers are always welcome. The club is voluntary so they are welcome to come along once for a session or attend regularly or semi-regularly as they are able and willing to.

"They can bring friends or attend alone if they prefer, or bring along a teacher, mentor or friend for their first meeting. We read and discuss any books in the YA genre."

If any publishers or authors would also like to visit, they just need to get in touch via one of the club's social media pages. However, this does not guarantee stock in Waterstones or promotional offers.

The club has its own Facebook page  and is also on Twitter at  and Instagram:
