Like Book Group 1, we enjoy reading and talking about books and their hinterland. We are open to a wide range of literature in English, including translations. Our books, on the whole, are likely to be recent, and possibly on prize lists, but there is no reason not to delve into the past for classics and old favourites. They will usually but not necessarily be works of fiction.
Individual members will suggest books, and the group will decide which book to read for the next meeting. Some books will be new to everyone, and some recollected from the past.
We will discuss our book for up to an hour and a half, plus time for tea and coffee and biscuits.
Normally we will discuss one book per session. Books will normally be fiction, but we will not rule out biography and other non-fiction.
Group Convener : Roz Hudson
The Group meets in members’ houses on the first Thursday of every month, 3 – 4.30 p.m. The number of places available per meeting is between 8 and 10.
