Book Club 1
This is led by Chris and usually meets monthly on the 3rd Thursday in the month at 2pm. We hold our meetings at 19 Embankment Road, Kingsbridge, the home of one of our members. We meet every month throughout the year.
We belong to the Devon Library Book loan scheme and they send us a set of books each month for a year from a list of books that we choose annually from their extensive list. If they cannot provide a set from our most recent year’s choices they may send a set from a previous year or sometimes a 'Wild Card' set.
Recently we have read The House on the Strand by Daphne du Maurier, Death Comes to Pemberley by P D James, A Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain and 12 Years a Slave by Solomon Northrup.
The talk about the book can lead on to a discussion of other related topics and when that dries up we all have a cup of tea or coffee and a chat.
Currently we have 11 members, so are unable to take any new members at present. However, there are two other Book Groups and if there is sufficient interest a fourth group could be started. Contact me if you would like to be put on the waiting list for a place – Chris Barnwell on Tel: 852160 or click Book Club 1 to email.
