The group initially met on 8 May and will now continue to explore interesting figures from any field of human endeavour.
Ideally in each session one member of the group will talk about the figure whom they have found particularly interesting, followed by discussion.
We shall aim for variety in our choice of subjects: politicians, artists, scientists, authors, musicians, sportspeople, church leaders and explorers. Whatever the subject we shall seek a rounded portrait of the person, not simply a two-dimensional account. The focus can be on their private lives, habits, beliefs, sexuality and social relationships as well as their achievements.
Meetings are on the fourth Wednesday in the month, and new members are welcome.
