The Book club looks at contemporary fiction of all genres. Members join either of 2 groups who meet and both read the same book. We meet once a month and discuss the book in small groups for about 35 minutes, followed by a whole group discussion. We will also rate each book 1 – 10.
There is also a book swap opportunity, so if you have books you have already read, you can bring them along and select any others you are interested in.
We have now chosen the following books to be read in 2023:
March 27th/28th The Salt Path Raynor Wynn
April 24th/25th American Dirt Jeanine Cummins
May 22nd/23rd Sister Rosamund Lupton
June 26th/27th The Word is Murder Anthony Horowitz
