REALM OF BOOKS

The meetings are held at All Saints Church, Newmarket on the 4th Friday of the month starting at 2.30 pm.

26 July:Alan BennettWritings
23 August:Madeline MillerThe song of Achilles or Circe
27 September:Louisa YoungMy dear I wanted to tell you

In July the Group had many different views about Alan Bennett’s books, covering a wide range of topics from autobiographical to humour. There was certainly humour in The Uncommon Reader, delving into the Queen’s reading habits, and to a certain extent in The Lady in the Van which we know to be true, however unlikely. Untold Stories did reveal a little of his own life which came over as more serious.

Bennett has of course written much more and mostly the group was impressed by his writing and his rise to fame.

We shall meet again on 23 August.
