Next Meetings: Wednesday 18th September 2019, Wednesday16th October2019

How the group works: Books (library group loan) are issued at a meeting for members to read, and are then discussed at the following meeting. We choose our reading list democratically each year so everyone is sure of finding something they like. We very rarely agree about the merits of a particular book, which adds to our enjoyment and the liveliness of our meetings. We are still looking for members to join us. I have spare copies of the book and can arrange a handover.
If you would like more details then contact group leader, Brenda Molnar on 01772 722132.

Book for discussion: September 2019 : About My Mother by Tahar Ben Jelloun

Lalla Fatma thinks she's in Fez in 1944, where she grew up, not in Tangier in 2000, where this story begins. By her bedside, her son Tahar listens to long-hidden secrets and stories from her past: married while still playing with dolls and widowed for the first time at the age of sixteen. Guided by these fragments, Tahar vividly conjures his mother's life in post-war Morocco, unravelling the story of a woman for whom resignation was the only way out.
