Books - Readers Digest

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

In the past we have had sessions on Thomas Hardy – The Mayor of Casterbridge and Wilkie Collins – The Moonstone, plus various books by Charles Dickens and Jane Austen. We occasionally have a theme, when we have done American novels; foreign novels in French, German or Swedish for example, which have been translated into English; and modern literature. We are now reading The Wine of Solitude by Irène Némirovsky, which will be followed by Easy Silence by Angela Huth.

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.
