South Lakes

Literary Studies

Co-ordinator: Ed Mason
Meetings: Monthly, 3 rd Friday, 2.00 p.m. (tea/coffee 1.45p.m.) Castle Street Centre

The Literary Studies Group has been meeting for over 20 years. We plan a programme of reading for up to about a year in advance.
For each meeting a member introduces the chosen work, and this is followed by a discussion.
The books we choose are mainly novels, both classic and modern, but occasionally include non-fiction, plays, & poetry.
We also have regular 'Own Choice' sessions at which members have an opportunity to discuss any book which has interested them.

We try to keep down cost by borrowing sets of books from the County Library service, and by buying cheap, paperback editions.

During Covid-19 we have continued to meet with most members joining by Zoom. In these difficult times we have enjoyed some traditional classics, and some lighter reading. We have just started Face-to-Face meetings again.

The group’s membership has been stable for a long period, and we are not currently looking for new members.
