ABC's The Book Club to end

13 October 2017

After 11 years the ABC’s 'The Book Club' is set to end after its Christmas Special on December 19th 2017.

Jennifer Byrne has decided that it is time for a break and will leave the  ABC after a long career with the broadcaster that also included working on 'Foreign Correspondent', 'Lateline' and 'The 7:30 Report'.

Byrne said in a statement that:  “International authors were often astonished – and envious – that a show like ours existed, let alone endured. Thanks to the ABC which backed us, to the publishing industry which embraced us – and deepest thanks to the readers who travelled with us. I’ve loved the journey more than I can say”.
