Reading For Pleasure

Leader: Ann Baxter (07932 721765)
Venue: Norton House, downstairs
Time: Friday, 1.45–3.45 pm

Please contact the leader to check current availability.

This group reads novels, plays and poetry of an accessible kind.

During the sessions members who wish to, take turns in reading the text.

There follows discussion of different aspects of the work, enhanced by research which enables us to understand the author and the atmosphere in which it was written.

In the case of historical work, we try to understand the background.

Where the book has been filmed, we try to view it. The Group occasionally attends performances at nearby theatres.
