Reading Group 2
We read books selected from the Hampshire Libraries Reading Group Sets list, and discuss one each month. Occasionally, we read books that are not on the list, but buy our own copies. We read a mixture of fiction and non-fiction.
We meet in different homes each month, on the morning of the first Tuesday, with the host leading the meeting.
Once a year we try to arrange to visit a location with literary connections. We have had trips to Dorchester for Thomas Hardy, Chawton for Jane Austen and Minstead for Conan Doyle.
