This group is now meeting at OLDHAM LIBRARY The meetings are once a month. Usually the first Friday in the Month at 2 p.m.
We have a planned list of books from Oldham Library with four free choice months per year.
We aim to include all members attendng in the discussion, starting the meeting by each member saying what they thought of the book before discussing it more fully. We find ourselves reading books we wouldn't normally choose, some we love, some we hate, some we never finish, often books disliked by the majority lead to the best discussion. What we all share is a love of reading.
Our book for August is 'All the Light we Cannot See' by Anthony Doerr.
Our book for September is 'The Girl with All the Gifts' by Mr Carey
Both of these books will be discussed at our meeting on Friday 5th October, 2 p.m. at Oldham Library.
Our book for October is 'A Perfectly Good Man' by Patrick Gale.
This book will be discussed at our meeting on Friday 2nd November.
