Warrington

Literature

The Group Leader is Maureen McCoy

The Literature Group meet at Bold Street Methodist Mission on the 1st Thursday of the month at 1:30pm, for 2 hours. We are in the Lounge(2nd Floor)not far from the Lift and break mid session for a friendly cup of coffee or tea and biscuits, provided by a group member.

We look at all aspects of Literature, from ancient to modern - from a variety of points of view.

#During 2017-2018 we have included the following topics

Summmer Reading
Toni Morrison
Christmas stories/poems
Graham Greene
Henry James
Wm Blake
Science Fiction
Angry Young Writers(60s)
My Life In Books(TVFormat)

For 2018-2019 we hope to cover some of the following topics and/or others still to be agreed

Summer Reading
American Fiction 1980s (A Proulx ,E Hoffman, D DeLillo )(D Coupland)
E.E. Cummings
Christmas Stories/Poems
New York in fiction
Muriel Spark
Guns & Law USA

Most sessions are led by a group member with some speakers from other U3A Groups and also occasional external speakers.

Sessions can include close reading of a particular novel or poem and/or a DVD which may provide biographical information, or outline the historical context for a novel and author's work etc. The main idea is to offer an introduction to a novel, poem, author or period which may lead members to wider reading, sometimes in areas new to them.

I took over leadership of the Group in January 2013. We are a small group at present so looking to recruit new members. All that is required to join is an interest in Literature and in sharing your reading experiences, interests and views. Come along and try it.

For further information contact Maureen through a message on this site, or find contact details on your membership sheet or timetable.
