The Book Group meets on the first Monday of every month at Eastwood Library at 11 o’clock.
The contacts for the group are Sue Draper, 01773 717 676 firstname.lastname@example.org and Pauline Clayton 01773 788 366 email@example.com
We are a small friendly group who read and discuss a different book every month. The books, which are mostly contemporary fiction, are selected and provided by the Nottinghamshire Library Service. When we arrive at the meeting, the books are already on the table ready for us and are always a surprise. In June we read a post apocalyptic novel called ‘The Dog Stars’, by Peter Heller and this month (July 2017) we have ‘An Officer and a Spy’, a thrilling tale of historical fiction written by Nottingham born author, Robert Harris, worth a read. New members would be made very welcome. Pauline Clayton
We have read a wide variety of books including A Thousand Splendid Suns, Mill on the Floss, Eleanor of Acquitaine, The Help, Animal Farm, The Kite Runner, Gone Girl and The Cellist of Sarajevo. When we have read the book we discuss it and it is interesting to realise that a book we particularly enjoyed may not have been to other peoples taste. It all makes for interesting discussions.
Each month a new set of books is borrowed from the library. Not all books are popular with everyone and no-one has to persevere with a book if it’s not to their taste; the main aim is to enjoy reading and share that enjoyment with others. It’s good to share and it’s fun.
Our current read is ‘The Hundred-year-old Man who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared’ by Jonas Jonasson. (An international best seller about aging disgracefully)
