Book Group 2
We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 11am at a member's home in Ross.
Book Group 2 (The Really Good Readers) has a hard core of members who come along to exchange views on the chosen book. Coffee and cake out of the way, gossip forgotten, the discussion can become heated. A potted biography of the author is usually available and besides content we discuss style and what we, as readers, got out of the book. We have space for one or two new members. Please contact the Group Co-ordinator. The library usually sends 12 - 15 books, occasionally a large print copy and very occasionally a Spoken Word.
Everyone welcome, all views are important and will always be heard.

June 2020 'Now We Are Completely Free' by Andrew Miller.
