Book Group  SU3A Book Group

 

This Group is for people who enjoy reading. The books we choose come from an eclectic background and may be contemporary novels, well known classics, not so well known books and members favourites. These can be fiction or non fiction.

 

There is no particular format for discussion, some may not have finished the book, some will have enjoyed it, others not, but this in no way deters from lively and often humorous discussion. The books are chosen and agreed by members, normally on a 6 months basis.

 

We meet from 2pm - 4pm on the fourth Tuesday of the month at Isleburgh, usually in Room 13, but occasionally in the Radio Room. The exact room will be displayed on the Isleburgh information board in Reception.

 

New members are always welcome. Come along to a meeting and see what you think, you may find it difficult not to join in the discussion.

 

The Books for 2018 are:

 

23 January The Outrun by Amy Liptrot

An exhilarating nature memoir about recovering from alcoholism set in Orkney that was a runaway hit.

 

27 February The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry

A blissful novel of unapologetic appetites, where desire and faith mingle on the marshes, but friendship is the miracle.

 

27 March Being Mortal by Atul Gawande

Never before has aging been such an important topic.
