Exeter

Book Salon

Convenor: Kathleen Luton

Meets: 1.30pm - 3.30pm on the second Monday of the month at The Northcott Theatre.

The Book Salon was formed in June 2017 after ten U3A members had attended a course at Exeter University called Reading for Life. We studied alongside third year English students and all found the experience informative and thought provoking.

A small number of us decided to continue meeting to explore themes in literature through novels, plays, poetry and non-fiction. Our themes to date have included: Pilgrimage, Anger, The Environment and Feminism. The literature studied has included The Canterbury Tales (G. Chaucer) Look Back in Anger (J. Osborne) Sightlines (K. Jamie) and The Female Eunuch (G. Greer).

Everyone in the group undertakes preparatory reading and leads sessions from time to time.

Currently there are no vacancies in the group, but this does change from time to time.
