Reading isn’t the first thing we’d imagine the cool kids of Shoreditch doing of an evening, but clearly we’ve underestimated their literary aspirations – because tonight the Hoxton Hotel launches its new book club.

Not just any book club, either – it’s in association with Elle magazine and the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction (AKA the former Orange Prize).

The club starts off with Animals by Emma Jane Unsworth – who will be there in person to give a reading, answer questions and lead the club discussion in the courtyard garden.

Sadly it’s not free, even for guests – tickets cost £20 (and have sold out for tonight). They do, though, include a signed copy of the book in question, a year’s Elle subscription, canapés and a tipple of Baileys.

The next event will be Emma Healey talking about her novel, Elizabeth Is Missing, on 7 July. Up-and-coming, trendy female authors seem to be the theme for the book club, and if this first event is anything to go by, it's clearly going to be a popular fixture (it's down the road from the infamous Literary Salon of Shoreditch House - run by friend-of-HotelChatter Damian Barr - after all). Early booking is probably a wise move: details here.
