The Readers Group meets twice a month on Thursday afternoons at 2 p.m. at Stonehouse. Our aim is to read and study books.
A Readers Group is not a book group, except in the most general sense. It studies books, mainly but not exclusively novels, to find out how each book works, what the author intended us to understand, and mainly what we pick up by casual reading and what we discover by closer reading.
We choose our books according to a simple rule: they are books that we know about but have never read (and think we should) or books that we have read before and think we ought to read again, with mutual help if necessary. Naturally it can be a long process and requires stamina, but it does not need particular knowledge or cleverness. Evidently it helps if you like reading.
At present (September 2018) we have finished reading Under Western Eyes by Joseph Conrad and have begun There Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome.
