Whitwick & District U3A - Reading Group
This group is for those with a general interest in all books and reading. At each meeting we choose the book we will read during the following month and discuss the book we have just finished. We meet in each others' homes and the host of the next meeting selects the book that will be read and discussed.
If you've looked at, or even read, some of our choices, why not come along and join us? You don't have to join in with the discussion if you don't want to. All you need is a love of reading a wide range of books and we would be delighted to see you.
You can choose to get email reminders about the group's meetings by using this page in the Members' Area.
2nd Monday of the month for approx 1 hour
To make the process of selecting a book for the group to read, we decided to limit our choices to the following categories for this year: Auto/biographies, Short listers or prize winners, Short stories
Mon Jun 11th Our choice of book this month is 'The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessey' by Rachel Joyce. Some time ago, we read the prequel about Harold Fry's unlikely pilgrimage to be re-united with Queenie, who was dying of cancer. This is a darker but no less compelling novel. The story is not without its own pleasurable uplift and adds weight to the account of Harold's journey.
If you've enjoyed this or any novels, do come and join us for coffee and biscuits. There's never any compulsion to join in, your presence would be most welcome.
