THE BOOK CLUB
2.30pm - Third Thursday of the month (usually)

The Book Club meets at 2.30pm in the members’ houses on the third Thursday of the month.

Each member introduces a book, which may be a recently published novel or one we would like to re-visit and occasionally, a selection of poetry.
This year for example, we have read ‘The Children Act’ by Ian McEwan, ‘The Paying Guests’ by Sarah Waters, ‘Precious Bane’ by Mary Webb and poems by Edward Thomas.

After the group have given their general response to a book, we try to move in closer and consider matters such as characterisation, plot and structure, themes and style of writing. We finish with tea, coffee and biscuits.
