The Book Club has been meeting virtually, via Zoom, this year. We usually have a light-hearted discussion and a chat about our chosen book. Not everyone likes every book, but that’s ok, as it makes the discussions more interesting.
We all enjoy the conversations and the fact that we read books we might not have chosen ourselves.
We are a friendly group of people and welcome new members.
At our June Book Club meeting we discussed ‘Step by Step’ by Simon Reeve.
We had a very lively discussion about his troubled teenage years and his development
into an accomplished writer, journalist and adventurer. We can highly recommend this book.
The July meeting focussed on the book ‘Between the Stops’ by Sandi Toksvig.
If you are interested in joying us, please get in touch with any of the members
to get the Zoom link. New members will be made very welcome.
The final meeting of The Forum in the 2020 / 21 session was a virtual one and was held on 26th April 2021.
