Sydney’s Finest Literary Events Programme

Join leading Australian and international authors, thinkers, and speakers in an engaging discussion of their work.  All events take place upstairs at 49 Glebe Point Road.

Book launches are free and open to the public.  Our Literary Events are $12 & $9 concession (pensioner/student) and free to gleeclub members – though bookings are still required, as popular events do sell out.  Weekday events generally commence at 6pm for 6.30pm, and weekend events at 3.30pm for 4pm. Places are unreserved, so arrive a little early if you require a particular seat.

Bookings are essential for both free and ticketed events, so we can staff and cater the event appropriately.  Book here, following the links below,  or phone 02 9660 2333.  We will email you an order confirmation immediately upon completion of your booking; please bring a copy as proof of your booking, as we do not issue physical tickets. For virtual (zoom events) we send a Zoom link to all registered attendees by late morning on the day of the event.

Listings are subject to change without notice. Customers with existing bookings will be notified by email of changes that may affect them.  You are welcome to cancel any booking without penalty for a full refund up until the date of the event; however refunds are not available for non-attendance after the date of the event. Phone the shop on 02 9660 2333 to cancel a booking or request a duplicate if you have misplaced your booking confirmation.
