Between Two Books

tHE fLORENCE + THE MACHINE BOOK CLUB

Set up in 2012, Between Two Books has come leaps and bounds from its early days. A book club dedicated to Florence Welch's love of reading, the club are given a read recommendation every few months by Florence or other special guests, and anyone who wants to join in on the big read can do so. Afterwards, everyone gets together for a discussion about the book. The admins have some exciting and innovative projects and collaborations lined up, all of which will be available in this section of the website as they are announced

WE ARE CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF WORKING WITH THE BOOK CLUB TO UPDATE THE READING LIST / CURRENT READS. PLEASE BEAR WITH US WHILST WE COMPILE ALL THE DATA OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS :)
