Book Circle 2
We are currently holding our meetings via a Zoom video conference; anyone unable to join in can send their views by email to the rest of the Group. We intend to continue to hold our meetings using Zoom until we are able to meet again face-to-face.
Our next session will be on Monday 10th August starting at 10.30am.
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 requirements to join.
Convener: Wendy Wooldridge, tel - 020 8997 9622, or email through the blue bird, above
