Book Club

 

BOOK CLUB: Summerwater – Sarah Moss

Wednesday 17th November – 6:45 for 7pm start

It is the summer solstice, but in a faded Scottish cabin park the rain is unrelenting. Twelve people on holiday with their families look on as the skies remain resolutely grey. A woman goes running up the Ben as if fleeing; a teenage boy chances the dark waters of the loch in his kayak; a retired couple head out despite the downpour, driving too fast on the familiar bends. But there are newcomers too, and one particular family, a mother and daughter with the wrong clothes and the wrong manners, start to draw the attention of the others. Who are they? Where are they from? Should they be here at all? As darkness finally falls, something is unravelling . .

The discussion will be led by Jane Owen and Tim O’Kelly


CLASSIC BOOK CLUB: The Rainbow – D.H.Lawrence

Wednesday 18th January 2022 – 6:45 for 7pm start

Set in the rural Midlands, The Rainbow chronicles the lives of three generations of the Brangwen family over a period of more than 60 years, setting them against the emergence of modern England. When Tom Brangwen marries a Polish widow, Lydia Lensky, and adopts her daughter Anna as his own, he is unprepared for the conflict and passion that erupts between them. All are seeking individual fulfilment, but it is Ursula, Anne’s spirited daughter, who in her search for self-knowedge, becomes the focus of Lawrence’s examination of relationships and the conflicts they bring, and the inextricable mingling of the physical and the spiritual.

The discussion will be led by Elizabeth Griffiths

Ginger’s Cafe

Coming soon!!!

Book Doctor

An appointment with our book doctor makes a great gift - for a birthday or a wedding, or just to treat yourself or a friend.  Our personal service begins with a consultation usually lasting 30 minutes or so which includes coffee and a welcome pack, discussing your reading tastes and getting an idea of what you love most about books. We then send out a monthly book choice to any address in the UK (other destinations available on request).

Prices start at £60 for 6 months, or £120 for 12 months.
