Book Group

1st Thursday in month, 2.00 – 4.00pm
NB Check with Julie for dates

Venue: St Edmund’s Hall, Glastonbury

Leader: Julie Hillman      Tel:01458 446643       Email: juliehillman@btinternet.com

We meet on the first Thursday afternoon of each month to share our thoughts and opinions of a chosen book. As you might imagine, it is a rare if not unheard of occurrence that these opinions are unanimous and it is often that very fact that makes for an interesting and enjoyable discussion.

We arrive at our selected reading list by each submitting a suggestion (no restrictions) and taking a vote. Our reading list for September through to February 2024 is shown on the right.

Members are responsible for obtaining their own copies of the texts.

Each session is introduced by a different group member although this is not forced upon anyone not wishing to do so. There is opportunity for everyone to have their say.

The ideal size of the group for a lively discussion is around 12. Allowing for the inevitable one-off absenteeism, there may be a few spare places. If you would like more information please do contact me.
