Book Club / Reading Group
Members of the Reading Group gather together to discuss literature each month at Swann Court, Sutton Bonington.
The books are chosen and loaned by the Nottingham Library and delivered to a local access point. They are mostly Novels but also include Autobiographies, (for example, 'Bad Blood') Historical Fact, ('The Underground Man') and Travel, (John Simpson's Memoirs).
Large Print and 'Talking Books' are available.
For the first part of each meeting, we discuss the book we have read during the previous month. This always proves to be very lively indeed, with many differences of opinion.
Then, after a cup of tea, over which we discuss many other things, we enjoy our Poetry Session: we each read out a poem appropriate to the subject matter of the book, with a theme that has been chosen earlier. The poems may be of any era and by any poet. The wide range found by members is always pleasing.
Book titles have been various and wide ranging, from old hat 'Three Men in a Boat' and glitzy 'Gatsby', through the well balanced humour and sadness of 'Last Orders', to new hat 'About a Boy'.
Join us at 14.00 on the 3rd Tuesday of every month for a most enjoyable experience.
