The Book Society, formerly the Society of Bookmen, is a club for professionals in the book trade, publishers, booksellers, literary agents, librarians and authors. Membership is exclusively by invitation from the Society’s committee.
The Book Society meets eight times a year at the Savile Club. At each dinner a speaker is invited to address the Society. The Society’s purpose is to encourage contacts and understanding between the various elements that make up the book trade.
