Reading Group
 

We plan a programme of reading for 6/7 months at a time, so members have an opportunity to order books from the library if they don't wish to buy them. We aim to include a classic novel and a factual book in each 6/7 monthly programme from suggestions made by members.

Our programme from September 2018 April 2019

THE MAYOR OF CASTERBRIDGE by Thomas Hardy

I'LL KEEP YOU SAFE by Peter May

THE GUSTAV SONATA by Rose Tremain

MORTAL MISCHIEF by Frank Tallis

HIDDEN LIVES by Margaret Forster

THE ABSOLUTIST by John Boyne

KOLYMSKY HEIGHTS by Lionel Davidson

On April 1 st we will be having a session of poetry when members can choose and read favourite poems to the group. If this is successful we will repeat it.

At our May meeting we will be discussing PERSUASION by Jane Austen. Our JUNE-DECEMBER programme has not yet been finalised. Suggestions from members have included BLACK DIAMONDS by Catherine Bailey, THE WYRD SISTERS by Terry Pratchett, A MAN CALLED OVE by Fredrick Backmann and THE STAR WITNESS by Andy Hamilton.

At the moment we have 10 members in the group.
