Book Club 2 – April

This month we read “Becoming” the autobiography of Michelle Obama. The whole group absolutely loved it and it provoked a long and happy discussion. We all admired the author enormously. Very compelling to read because it is so beautifully written. Ronnie Leech

Book Club 2 – March

This month our chosen book was “Guernica” by Dave Boling. A novel set in Northern Spain before during and after the Spanish Civil War.

The overall opinion was that the book was not liked very much as none of us could empathise with the […]

Book Club 2 – March

At our first proper meeting in February there were eight of us present. We had read A Year of Marvellous Ways by Sarah Winman. Three of us really loved it and the others either disliked it or were ambivalent about it. That’s what book clubs are all about.  Next month we will read Reservoir 13 […]
