U3A in the Time of Corona

This book is based on the Diary Project and has been created using contributions during Lockdown from U3A members all over the country.

It chronicles our reactions to coronavirus and isolation, as well as how to get a supermarket delivery, how to cut your own hair and what to do with all that free time. Some people sent drawings, photographs and poems, which have been included.

The book is A4, 120 pages, colour printed and costs £10 including postage.

If you would like to order a copy, please go to the national website https://www.u3a.org.uk/advice/shop/
