What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
It may be January but let's celebrate. We've survived Christmas and a glut of mince pies and now we're sitting down in the warm to read another great book. This month it will be THE HISTORY OF BEES by Maja Lunde, the story of three generations of bee keepers living first in Britain, then America and finally in China after global disasters have left a world without bees and possibly without hope. Join us this month to see if we survive!
Its' February, and it's cold outside, well it's probably going to be cold in here as well as we tackle NORTHERN LIGHTS, the start of Philip Pullman's amazing 'His Dark Materials Trilogy.' Lyra Belacqua and her animal daemon live half-wild and carefree among scholars of Jordan College, Oxford. The destiny that awaits her will take her to the frozen lands of the Arctic, where witch-clans reign and ice-bears fight. Her extraordinary journey will have immeasurable consequences far beyond her own world...A book caught between physics and magic with excitement and wonder all the way. Join us to find out what Lyra discovers in the cold north.
It's April and time for a Classic. Yes, your chance to choose a book from any year before 1920 that you'd like us to read. It could be H. G. Wells, George Eliot or anyone else that takes your fancy. Just remember, nothing before 1920- we're very strict! Hope you can join us for a classic evening of drink and discussion.
