Book Group

Book Group Facilitator: Catherine Cowie

Meetings: members' homes, 2nd Tuesday of each month, 2 - 4pm

The book group presently gets together monthly, usually meeting at members' homes. We are a small and friendly band, and you'd be very welcome to join us, even if it's only a one-off visit to meet us, or perhaps because you've noticed we'll be discussing a book that interests you. Our activities have often extended beyond the expected discussions of a monthly book choice. In the past year we've met for meals out, enjoyed a poetry discussion afternoon, and have arranged visits to both Boswell and Wigtown Book Festivals. And we're always open to fresh ideas to enhance our enjoyment of the books we read.

Don't let worry about hosting meetings put you off - hosting is purely voluntary. And if you need a lift to get to a meeting, that can be arranged between us too.

Book Group News:

February's read is "Dear Mrs Bird" by A.J. Pearce . Set in London in 1941. Emmeline dreams of becoming a Lady War Correspondent but when she spots a job advertisement she finds herself, by mistake, typing letters for an agony aunt. Irresistibly funny and enormously moving, this book is a love letter to the enduring power of friendship, the kindness of strangers and the courage of ordinary people in extraordinary times.

If you are interested in coming along, please do get in touch (click the blue and white envelope 'link' button on this page), and I'll get back to you when I can.

Hope to see you there,

Catherine
