Book Circle 2

Book Circle 2

We meet on the 2nd Monday of every month from 11.00am at a member's house.

It is a democratic group. We decide the books to be read for 2 or 3 sessions in advance and a member undertakes to introduce the book and lead the discussion. A love of reading and a willingness to do some research on a particular book or author are the only requiements to join.
We recently studied The Garden of Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng, and are currently reading Under the Greenwood Tree by Thomas Hardy.

Convener: Wendy Wooldridge, tel - 020 8997 9622, or email through the blue bird, above
