We meet once a month on Tuesday mornings to discuss our latest book choice.
For our June 2019 meeting, Avril Wallace invited fellow Bookworms to Elmbridge Retirement Village.
Over coffee in her new home we discussed our book of the month, The School Inspector Calls! by Gervase Phinn.
Avril has met the author on several occasions and told us that he combines what he has seen personally as a school inspector with stories he has heard elsewhere. For surely no single school in the Yorkshire Dales could provide that much incident and excitement.
Not all of us liked the book, but in the main we agreed that it was an agreeable, easy read, with that rare ingredient, the occasional “laugh out loud” moment.
After the meeting we enjoyed lunch together in the Elbridge Restaurant.
Many thanks to Avril for her kind invitation.
