Book Circle 1

We meet soon after 10am for coffee on the 4th Monday of every month except August and December. At present we have 12 members and no vacancies.

At 10.30 the presenter for the month introduces their chosen book. There is complete freedom in book choice either fiction or non-fiction with no restrictions on length or genre. It is expected that all members will have read the book before the meeting. The wide range of authors & styles covered leads to stimulating discussions, sometimes changing opinions. We end at midday.

The books selected for future reading are:

  • October 2019 Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood
  • November 2019 Educated by Tara Westover
  • January 2020 The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris
  • February 2020 Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie
