Short Story Group, Bedminster
What it is: Each month we read a short story at home and then read it out loud in the group and discuss. This format has worked well as the second reading usually brings a new meaning for all of us.
When it is: The first Monday of the month, 10 am to noon.
Where it is: "Normally" at Bedminster Library, Bedminster Parade (very near ASDA) in the room off the Reception Area on the ground floor. However now meeting in Victoria Park or via Zoom depending on the weather.
Note: 2 hours parking is allowed at ASDA.
The library does not provide tea or coffee but there is a coffee shop opposite and the library is quite happy for us to bring a take away. The library is accessible by bus and if anyone has a bike they are happy for us to put them in the room for safe keeping.
We read a short story aloud around the group and discuss. We are using a variety of Irish writers from The Oxford Book of Irish Short Stories, edited by William Trevor and The Penguin Book of the British Short Story edited by Philip Hensher. This group is suitable for members who do not have enough time to read a whole book in a month plus ideal for members with sight problems.
