Belper & District

Book Group 1

This group is only open to current Members of the Belper and District U3A or one of the Derbyshire Cluster U3As

  • Meeting details Ist Thurs each month in members’ homes
  • Any costs No
  • Who it will suit Anyone who enjoys a wide variety of reading for pleasure
  • Any particular materials/equipment required No
  • Examples of activities, past or planned We recently enjoyed “Black Diamonds” by Catherine Bailey, an extraordinary true story of the rise and fall of an aristocratic family whose wealth was built on Yorkshire coal-mining.
  • What the group is aiming to do--- Read and discuss various fiction and non-fiction books.

Loans are arranged by choosing from a list supplied by Belper Library. As they are not always able to supply the selected books, this has resulted in the group reading and enjoying things they wouldn't normally choose.

After reading 'Sons and Lovers'’ the group visited DH Lawrence's birthplace in Eastwood.

A successful session discussing poems has been held and the group is going to look at the poetry of Carol Ann Duffy, the new poet Laureate.

This group is currently full

Please contact the group co-ordinator to add your name to the waiting list by clicking on the 'mail-to' envelope in the top right-hand corner of this page. If we get more than 6 on the waiting list a new group can be started and we are happy to help with this
