Several years ago, after having allowed our novel choices to range from late 20th century works and into the 21st, we decided to confine our choice of programme to books published in or since 2000. Books chosen must be available in paperback.
Each year members introduce a book of their own choosing to the rest of the group, their presentations forming the basis for the subsequent, often very lively, discussions. They are asked to notify the group leader of their choices for the following year by October every year so that a reading list can be prepared and circulated in good time.
