The #AdventureSociety is a book club for adventurous people. For as long as people have been telling stories, they've been telling adventure stories. In each episode below we speak to an author who has recently published a new adventure novel. We hope to bridge the gap between an author and their readers, asking about everything from their latest book to how they got where they are today.

Why not start an online book club or take your pick of these novels to introduce your current reading group to? We know books have the power to bring people together. Use our resources to help you choose which book to read first, for guidance on how to start an online book club, and for discussion sheets to help you delve deeper into each of the novels.
