Group OrganiserGloria Crick
VenueChatham Library
Meeting Days4th Monday of the Month (am)
Group Vacancies? No, but waiting list available

We have read a very wide range of fiction this year. Exposure by Helen Dunmore was a good read and the discussion was really interesting.

The Buried Giant by Kasuo Ishiguro really divided opinion, a fascinating book, Snap by Belinda Bauer was another book which led to a lengthy discussion.

It is very interesting that we go along to the meetings with a fixed opinion of the book we have just read then find that we start looking at it in a different way after talking about it. There have been times when some of us wondered if we had all read the same book.

We meet in Chatham Library and the staff there have proved very helpful, even providing tea and coffee with an honesty box for contributions.
We now have a list of reading group books from the library so we will be choosing books from that for a while rather than buying books. It really helps the library as well.

The group cannot take on new members at the moment but will start a waiting list with a view to starting another group.
