May book discussion - Beyond Black by Hilary Mantel

The Organisers invite you to join us for our Book Discussion Evening.

Share views and gain new insights into this months book.

....and to vote for our next book from a list of suggestions from our members.

Drinks and socialising in The Bar from 7.30pm for a 8pm Start in the function room upstairs.

If, as a new member, you need help finding us and becoming acquainted with the group please email the organiser.



If anyone has a suggestion for our next book please email the details to the message board at... [masked]  Please include a review of the book with your message or better still, tell us in your own words why we should be reading it. Ideally suggestions should be available in paperback (for affordability) not too long or too short [masked] pages seems to work best) and of a decent standard of literature (make your own judgment about that one).

Also please give some thought as to how well the book lends itself to  lively discussion and debate on the night - Such things as a complexity of plot, a variety of themes, philosophical or social issues, well developed characters and perhaps a few unexpected twists and turns.

If you do recommend a book we will ask you to briefly (3 minutes maximum) tell us about the book at the meetup before we put each title to the vote so please come prepared for that. You do not have to chair

    Argh - stuck at work! Sorry to miss this. For what it's worth I'm liking the combination of grimness/lightheartedness and while it reads as a bit 'rushed' at times compared to other ones we've read I am finding it a good read!

    I'd been planning to come along but unfortunately work has intervened. Rather disappointed as I'd very much enjoyed the book and had been looking forward to the discussion.

    Not much joy with the heavenly trousers, Tony, so can I suggest "Wise Blood" by Flannery O'Connor next time around.
