Bristol

Reading Group, Bedminster

What is it: For members who enjoy reading and sharing impressions of the book with a friendly group.

When is it: The second Monday of the month, 10.30 to 12 noon. (NB - If there is a Bank Holiday on the Monday, we count from the following Monday.)

Where is it: From 8 April 2019 in the Meeting Room at Bedminster Public Library. Bring your own drink.

Reading a book is a valuable discipline to cultivate for all ages, and especially as you get older. It keeps the brain active and is, at the same time, very pleasurable.

We collectively choose what to read 3 or 4 months in advance - mainly novels - from a wide range of authors, living or dead. Sometimes these will be a translation from the original language, and nearly always paperback. We then discuss the book and our varying opinions at the next meeting.

We have no leader as such, someone volunteers to lead the next session, usually the person who recommends the book.

To contact the Convener or for further details please click on 'send a message' at the top right, see the Annual Bulletin or latest Newsletter, or write via the Contacts page.

Contact before coming. Disabled/Easy access. Parking nearby. 5 mins to nearest bus stop.
