What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in reading long and short-listed and prize winning novels - think the Man Booker, the Costa, or the Women's Prize for Fiction (used to be the Orange) for example - and getting together to share what we enjoyed (or not!). We choose our reading together from past and present nominees and winners. We meet regularly once a month, on a Monday evening from 6.30-8.00pm or so, in central Peterborough for a deep dive into a world of thought-provoking and sometimes challenging writing!

Just a word about how we work: we try to keep the group active and manageable, and we have a lot of interest in joining the group. So just to make you aware of a couple of things... First, if you join the group and then don't come along to meetings, we'll assume you're not able to actively participate and we may remove you from the participant list if we have people waiting to join us. Second, at the moment the group is pretty full, so if you request to join us and we don't accept you, this is the reason. We do keep requests to join, and we'll let you know when a space comes vacant. You can still follow what we're reading on the meet-up page if you want to in the meantime!

Let's meet up to talk about "H(A)PPY" (Nicola Barker)

We read long and short-listed and prize winning novels - think the Man Booker, the Costa, or the Women's Prize for Fiction (used to be the Orange) for example - and we get together to share what we enjoyed (or not!). We choose our reading together from past and present nominees and winners and meet from[masked]pm on the last Monday of the month in central Peterborough. You can get great coffee, a snack, even a glass of wine and join the conversation.... Just a word about how we work: we try to keep the group active and manageable, so just to make you aware - - if you join the group and then don't come along to meetings, we'll assume you're not able to actively participate and may remove you from the participant list if we have people waiting to join us. You can still follow what we're reading on the meet-up page if you want to though, and you're welcome to rejoin later when you know you can make it to sessions. - please change your RSVP as soon as possible if you discover you can't make it - this means the space is available for someone else. At present our group is fairly full and so we may have to regretfully turn away requests to join for now. However we keep requests to join and will let you know if vacancies come along.
