Audio book logoThe Spoken Word Reading Group is for members who enjoy listening to audio books. Whether this is because of a visual impairment or because you like to listen while you travel or just to help you to relax, it does not matter. Like the other reading groups a book is chosen every month to be discussed the following month. Group members are encouraged to share the titles of other 'good reads' over a cup of coffee.

For further information or to join the group please contact Marbe by clicking on the Message Bird.
