We are a group of 11 keen readers who meet monthly. Each member proposes a book they consider 'a good read' and, in turn, present it to the group with a brief introduction giving the reason for choice and a few details about the author.
The rules are:
The presenter has read the book;
The the book is no longer than 400 pages;
The book is available in paperback.
Presentation dates are agreed for the year, allowing ample time to obtain and read the books. One or two poetry sessions may be included.
The books chosen for 2019 include:
Home Fires by Kamila Shamsie;
The Bright Edge of the World by Eowyn Ivey;
The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway;
Central Line, Victoria Line by Maeve Binchley;
Burying the Typewriter by Carmen Bugan;
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman;
A Man Called Ove By Fredrick Blackman;
The Dry by Jane Harper;
Midwinter Break by Bernard McLaverty;
Dark Town by Thomas Mullen;
Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd.
Due to time and space constraints we are currently unable to accept new members, but would be pleased to put you on a waiting list or help you start a new group.
