Book aficionados, internationals and Danes alike need look no further than Hellerup’s Books & Company. After years of requests from customers, the international book cafe is launching its own book club in February.

Lara Miller, the newest addition to the team at Books & Company, will be heading the club. A native Australian who moved to Denmark ten years ago, Miller describes herself as a “happy customer” of the bookshop who wanted to get involved.

“I asked Isabella Smith, the owner, if there was a book club at the shop,” Miller said. “She said that there wasn’t, but it was something she would like to do, so I offered to help start one.” 

According to Miller, the response has been overwhelming already.

“We had to post online after one day of advertising that the response had been very positive and that places were full and we were already starting a waiting list,” Miller told The Copenhagen Post.

Although details and numbers are still being finalised – and will largely reflect the desires of the club members – 12 participants have already signed on, and the shop plans to hold monthly meetings. All of the book discussions will be in English.

Miller and the others at Books & Company find it important for the new club to provide an opportunity for all lovers of literature to share their ideas in a relaxed, positive environment. 

“Books & Company focuses as much on the ‘company’ as the ‘books’,” Miller said. “The book club creates a space for internationals and Danes to meet together and share their love of books.”
