Book Circle 3

Book Circle 3

The group meets on the second Wednesday of each month, at the convener's house in Hanwell. Participants arrive at 10am or soon after for a hot drink, and then we have a discussion about a novel for roughly an hour after that.

Currently this group is reading novels on Women in times of Conflict; the titles of the next books to be read are -

  • March: The Slap by Chistos Tsiolkas
  • April: The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker
  • May: Milkman by Anna Burns
  • June: Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain

There are no vacancies for new members in this group at the moment.
