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 Apr 9th The book this month is 'Americanah' by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. This is a love story - the tale of childhood sweethearts at school in Nigeria whose lives take different paths when they seek their fortunes in America and England - but it is also a brilliant dissection of modern attitudes to race, spanning three continents and touching on issues of identity, loss and loneliness.
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.
