PRIVATE LIVES MADE PUBLIC: THE PLEASURES AND SURPRISES OF BIOGRAPHY

If you are interested in personal stories and achievements of people, and the historical and social milieux in which they lived, you might like to join this small friendly group to read and discuss a variety of biographies, autobiographies and memoirs, chosen by members of the group for the year at the first meeting. The book chosen for September is 'Queen Victoria: Daughter, Wife, Mother, Widow' a fresh, vivid and engaging portrait of Queen Victoria by Lucy Worsley.

With current restrictions, the group this year has both exchanged comments on the chosen book by email, or written and posted; the group has also met, socially distanced, in large garden accessed by side passage between house and garage. Similar arrangements to continue.
