The book group meets about once a month to discuss a range of books selected by members.

Update: Feb 2020

Our last book was Daniel Deronda by George Eliot who was born in November 1819. It was probably her bicentenary that prompted the choice, which was not an easy read. Our next read is likely to be something lighter but still we hope worthy of discussion. If you like reading why not join us? If you’re interested contact Zoe on

Update: Autumn 2019

We’ve had some interesting reads recently – as always – which have sparked discussion and debate – as always!

In May we read Washington Black by Esi Edugyan and then in June we returned to one of our favourite writers, Barbara Kingsolver, for her new novel, Unsheltered.

Our most recent read was Warlight by Michael Ondaatje  – we liked the balance of narrative and reflection and thought the theme relating to childhood boundaries seemed to be a development from his earlier book Cat’s Table.

Our next book is An American Marriage by Tayari Jones for the next gathering which will be on Wednesday 25th September, and we’ll be meeting on Tuesday 15th October too.
