This is a group for people who love Books and reading. We will meet up once a month to suggest a new book and talk about what we have read. This will be a very informal Book Club, where it doesn't matter if you finish a book on time or even give up on it. The meet ups will be social occasions where we can enjoy a chat and a drink, exchange ideas and have some fun.
Hello all, Max here. This month's read is 'Flowers for Algernon' by Daniel Keyes - a classic science fiction novel published in 1960 (it was a initially a short story, published in the late 50s). We'll discuss the book and how we're doing, and ultimately pick a new read suggested by one of you. Enjoy the book and I hope to see you next month.
We've previously been holding these meetings on Zoom, but we're looking into moving over to Microsoft Teams. It might be an idea to look into getting a Teams account / downloading the app if you're interested in attending - watch this space.
UPDATE: We will be using Microsoft Teams to hold this meeting. Please contact myself or the Ipswich Book Lovers account via direct message and give me an email address that I can send the Teams invite to. It would be worth familiarising yourself with Teams and perhaps trying to log in: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/log-in
If you participate, please do bring along an idea of a book that you would love other people to read, something that moved you or you loved and want to share. Around 400 pages maximum, ideally fiction - something you have read before.
For the immediate future, there are no plans to do further in-person Ipswich Book Lovers meetups. We'll discuss this possibility further when lockdown restrictions are relaxed.
