Literature

LOCKDOWN UPDATE
This group is meeting using Zoom video conferencing on the 3rd Friday of each month. The next meeting is on Friday 16th July, starting at 10.30am.

====================================
Literature

The aim of the Literature Group is to cover both established classics and newly published works which include fiction, biography, drama and poetry.
We all decide on a theme and take it in turns to lead the discussions.
We have recently had sessions covering French Literature, Australian Literature and Climate Change.
Other topics we have done in the past include American Literature, Indian Literature, The Jewish Collection, Irish Literature, Children in Literature.

Our current theme is Satire and Humour, and we have been discussing Catch-22, Joseph Heller; The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams; The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Muriel Spark; Decline and Fall, Evelyn Waugh; and The Improbability of Love, Hannah Rothschild.
Our future books on Satire for discussion this year are Cold Comfort Farm, Stella Gibbons; Diary of a Nobody, George Grossmith; Candide, Voltaire; Vanity Fair, William Makepeace Thackeray; and Zuleika Dobson, Max Beerbohm.

We are often able to obtain our books from the Library, and some of us who have access to the internet find that we can not only buy books cheaply online but can look up information on our chosen author and book.

The group meets the third Friday monthly at 10.30am.

We have lively and informative discussions and enjoy coffee and a chat before each meeting starts.

Our meetings take place at Christine Edwards' flat at St Stephen's Court, St Stephen's Road, London W13 8HX.

For further information on our activities please contact Mary Hagger.
Phone 020 8567 5842 or email through the blue bird, above right.

Conveners: Mary Hagger and Christine Edwards.
