History Book Group

This group is dedicated to reading non-fiction history books. We meet once a month, normally at 11 am on the third Monday of the month. On this webpage you'll find book covers and reviews of some of the books we've read over recent months.

Our next meeting is at 11 am on Monday 15 April when we'll be discussing three books on the subject of the Spanish Civil War. Group members can opt to read one, two or all three of the following:'Homage to Catalonia', George Orwell and/or ‘An Anarchists Story: the life of Ethel MacDonald’, Chris Dolan and/or ‘As I walked out one midsummer morning’, Laurie Lee. Contact the co-ordinator for confirmation of the venue.
