Book Group  

We meet at 2pm on the fourth Tuesday of the months January to November in the Islesbugh Centre Radio Room in Lerwick.

The books we read come from an eclectic background and may be contemporary novels or well known classics, or not so well known.  The books are selected, agreed and programmed on a 6 monthly basis

There is no particular format for discussion, some may not have finished the book, but this in no way deters from lively and sometimes humorous discussion.

This Group is for people who enjoy reading.  It is not necessary to have an academic qualification or to have been a Professor of classics at Oxbridge.

New members are always welcome.  Come along to a meeting and observe us in action, you may find it difficult not to join in the discussion!

The U3A Book Group meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month at Islesburgh, 2.00p.m until 4.00p.m.

 The books for the coming months are:

June 27th       Private Angelo by Eric Linklater

July 25th         Meadowland, the private life of an English field by John Lewis-Stemper

Aug 22nd        The Sixth lamentation by William Brodrick

Sept 26th           The Harper’s Quine by Pat Macintosh

Oct 24th          The year of the runaways Sunjeev Sahota


In October last year we reviewed Runaway by Peter May. This was a popular choice and much enjoyed by the group. The research into the era described and the activities of young people then was very good and accurate. The characters were well written and the book had humour, pathos and a satisfactory ending. It is to be recommended.


Contact for the group is Larraine Gray, 01595 840517.
