Book Club

What is the Spring Chicken Book Club & how does it work?

The Spring Chicken Book Club is an ‘online’ book club that functions in exactly the same way as a ‘normal’ book club. Approximately once a month we’ll select a new Book of the Month. We’ll send you an email with all the details on, including where to buy it or download it from. A week or two after, we’ll send you a link to the book’s page on our website, where you can read reviews and contribute to the community questions. That’s it!

Is it free to join?

Yes. Absolutely free. There are no charges and you can leave at any point by clicking ‘unsubscribe’ in any of our Book Club emails.

How do I join?

It’s easy. Insert your name and email address into the form on the right (or below on mobile devices) and click ‘join now’. You’ll receive an email from us a few minutes after – and that’s it – you’re a Spring Chicken!

Can I tell my friends about the book club?

Of course you can. In fact, we’ve made it really easy. Simply ask them to go to www.springchicken.co.uk/spring-chickens-book-club and they can sign up to!

What is this month’s Book of the Month?

This month’s Book of the Month is A Grand Old Time by Judy Leigh.

Evie Gallagher is regretting her hasty move into a care home. She may be seventy-five and recently widowed, but she’s absolutely not dead yet. And so, one morning, Evie walks out of Sheldon Lodge and sets off on a Great Adventure across Europe.
But not everyone thinks Great Adventures are appropriate for women of Evie’s age, least of all her son Brendan and his wife Maura, who follow a trail of puzzling text messages to bring her home.
