Literature

Literature Group

We are starting a new Literature group in September. The idea is that we consider an author, or authors, in a term, roughly corresponding to a school term.

So in September, we are going to look at the Brontes, all three of them, or four, if you count their unfortunate brother. We will look at their lives, where they got their ideas from, and something about their books.

During the term we will see lots of videos, have a trip to Haworth, and for those who feel inclined, read Jane Eyre (Charlotte), Wuthering Heights (Emily) and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (Anne).

Dates for your diary

On Wednesday, October 25th, we are going to Haworth, leaving the Parkway Cinema at 9.30.am. The cost is £25, but that includes entry to the Parsonage, and a pre - parsonage talk. Anyone is welcome to join us. Contact Beth, on 01226 241477.

Wednesday, November 1st, trip to see Wuthering Heights at the Theatre Royal, Wakefield. We hope to have a minibus arranged soon. Please contact me if you want your name down for this (01226 241477)

Then in January, we will pass on to another author.

Should be good.

We will meet at Monk Bretton Methodist Church at 2 pm on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month, starting on Wednesday, September 13th. Feel free to give me a ring on 01226 241477 if you are interested.
