Have you read any good books recently or watched any interesting DVDs? We certainly have at Book Group. We started 2017 with a poetry evening, some serious poems, some to make us smile, and at least one read dramatically.
We journeyed from Somalia to Britain (Black Mamba Boy), experienced a ‘what would I do?’ dilemma (The Light Between the Oceans), investigated ‘what if’ (Life After Life), were ‘thrilled’ (Missing Presumed) and learned about the unrecognised female mathematicians who worked on the space race (Hidden figures).
Our books for 2018 are:
January 17th The Light Between Oceans by M L Stedman February 21st The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer March 21st Golden Hill by Francis Spufford April 18th Styx & Stone: An Ellie Stone Mystery (Ellie Stone Mysteries) by James Ziskin May 16th The Memory Stones by Caroline Brothers June 20th The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan July 18th The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry August 15th Hiding Places by Erin Healey September 19th Cutting For Stone Paperback by Abraham Verghese October 17th The Things We Knew by Catherine West November 21st Ten Weeks in Africa by J M Shaw December 20th The Target by David Baldacci
We are compiling a list of books for 2019 – any suggestions welcome.
New members are always welcome, we meet on the third Wednesday of each month in the Quiet Room at the rear of Frodsham Methodist Church.
The basic format is to discuss a book that we have all read over tea or coffee and homemade cake, with occasional visits to the theatre or cinema and watching of DVDs. The group meet in the Quiet Room in The Annexe so head to the gate toward the rear of the Church car park. If you are interested in joining our group or for more information speak to Patricia Barnard, who is also one of the Church Stewards, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
