Book Group 2
We meet in the afternoon on the 1st Tuesday of the month in each other's houses. We have a new theme each year which we chose from members’ suggestions. In 2017 it was books set in different regions of the UK, last year the theme was 21st century writers, and by sheer coincidence all the books chosen were by female authors. So this year’s theme is 21st century authors, but to redress the balance, all male authors.
We have a summer outing and a Christmas lunch, sometimes two Christmas lunches!
For our summer outing, Book Group 2 enjoyed a behind the scenes visit to the Royal Albert Hall, followed by an enjoyable lunch at a nearby Lebanese restaurant, and a leisurely stroll along the Embankment.
Our Christmas meal was held again at Fat Olives in Emsworth where our Book of Books for 2018 was revealed as "The Betrayal” by Helen Dunmore. The wooden spoon went to "the Essex Serpent” by Sarah Perry.
We now have a short waiting list for members.
