Short Story Reading Group

What it is: A group for people who enjoy reading short stories and talking about what they have read with others.

When it is: Monthly on 1st Monday of each month, 2-4pm.

Where it is: St Paul's Learning Centre (in the Carnival Room), 94 Grosvenor Road, St Paul's, BS2 8XY.

We read the stories between meetings and then meet to discuss our thoughts. Members are invited to participate in the selection of the stories. The group is suitable for members who do not have enough time to read a whole book in a month. WSome examples of the short stories we have read are: Tricks by Alice Munro, A Painful Case by James Joyce, The Lady and the Lapdog by Anton Chekhov, Tomorrow is too Far by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche and The Other Man by Viet Than Nguyen.

There is a very good Caribbean cafe on the ground floor of the centre if people want to meet for lunch beforehand.

This was a new group starting in January 2020, just before the start of the pandemic. It is currently meeting fortnightly from 2pm - 2.40pm on Zoom.

For more information contact the convenor, by sending a message by clicking on the pigeon 'send a message' link.

Wheelchair access to all floors. Some parking meters in nearby roads but free parking very limited. Some blue badge bays (bookable in advance). Buses 70, 71, 73, 75, 76 and T2 go along Gloucester Road. Nearest stop is Nine Tree Hill then a 15 minute walk.
