W- Armchair Traveller

The Armchair Travellers book group is intended for anyone interested in travel literature that falls into the genres of ‘Travelogues’ or ‘Autobiography’. It is hoped that the reading of such books would give us an insight to the lives and experiences of those who have either travelled to or settled in other lands. With a few laughs along the way, we may find deeper insights into places and cultures once briefly visited or longed for.

Group members would be required to read one book a month for the months we meet and will be able to suggest their own titles for subsequent meetings in the future. Purchase of books may be necessary if not available in the library. Websites of used copies will be provided.
