We are a group of 10 (maximum number due to the size of the room). 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 2018 include:
The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood;
Conclave by Robert Harris;
Mothers' Boys by Margaret Forster;
Plainsong by Kent Hauf;
The Behaviour of Moths by Poppy Adams;
Entry Island by Peter May;
Golden Hill by Francis Spufford;
Penguin Lessons by Tom Mitchell.
