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.
The first 2 books we selected were:
· October 24th/25th The Bees Laline Paul
· November 28th/29th The Island Victoria Hislop
