Happy Readers

We read one book a month and have an interesting discussion about it at the next meeting. Members take it in turns to present the book prior to general discussion.

Our friendly discussions are lively and we often find ourselves surprised when we hear more about an author's life and other members' views on particular books.

Our latest book was The Garden of the Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng, which was enjoyed by all the group. This was a book that some of our members had not heard about before but was very worthwhile to read – to discover new authors is one of the joys of belonging to a book group. Our next book will be The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier.

  • MEETINGS: 1st Wednesday in the month at 2pm (Not January)
  • VENUE: The Carnegie Room, Newbury Central Library in the Wharf, Newbury.
  • COST: £1.50 per person per year for Library Book Borrowing.

After our discussion we have a cup of tea and cake, which the group take it in turns to provide.
