Book Circles (4 Groups)

We currently have four Book Circles – a friendly and informal way of sharing a love of reading. Meetings are held in members’ homes, ensuring each group is small with around eight people. This makes for ease of discussion but once members settle in a group, vacancies rarely occur.

Each group is different reflecting the interests and tastes of its members. Typically they will select a book to read from the County Library`s special list (which supplies up to 10 copies) and have a month to read it. The book is then reviewed and discussed, often at length, at the next meeting. Another group will agree a theme or topic and the members bring examples to review and discuss. The sessions are usually rounded off with tea and biscuits, and sometimes cake!

If you would like to participate in a Book Circle, contact the Group Convenor, who will know of vacancies or will facilitate forming a new Book Circle. If you like books but would prefer an evening session, click here to see the Book Appreciation page. Please note that Book Group 6 is currently full.

Our convenors have each penned a few words about their groups, which can be accessed as follows:
