Books - Readers Digest

The Readers Digest Group has been running since 2007/8. We meet on the first Tuesday of the month in Lexden. Normally each member takes a turn to choose a book to read which will be discussed at the following meeting.

We occasionally have a theme, where we have done American novels, foreign novels in French, German or Swedish for example, which have been translated into English; and modern literature. In 2019 we are reading choices chosen by the group. This includes The Garden of Evening Mist (Tan Twan Eng), Mr Mac and Me (Esther Freud) and Times Arrow (Martin Amis). The member who has chosen the books also is encouraged to research (a little or as much as they wish) the author and the book and present what they have found.

We are a very friendly group and enjoy our varied programme; we would welcome new members when we have vacancies.

If you are interested in this Group please send a message to the Group Leader by clicking on the Bluebird contact button to the right of the page.
