Oldham & District

Reading Group

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 books for January and February are 'Catch 22' by Joseph Heller and 'The Invention of Wings' by Sue Monk Kidd.
The February meeting will be the afternoon tea [see below] We will be discussing both the above books at our March meeting on Friday 1st March.
The Reading Group have organised an afternoon tea and talk entitled 'Raucous Writers - regional writers and their lives, plus characters they've introduced whom we love or loathe' The event is on Friday 1st February 2 p.m. at The Sugar Junction, Tib Street, Manchester [In the Northern Quarter] The cost is £17.00 for the afternoon tea and £6.00 for the talk if 25 people attend. THIS OUTING IS NOW FULLY BOOKED. Please get in touch with Jenny on the email/phone number below for further information.
