Plug: Fireside Bookgroup

Book this month (21st October) is The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window – Jonas Jonasson. Next month (18th Nov) we’re doing Me Before You – Jojo Moyes

If you’re interested in coming along, we meet at 7:30pm every 3rd Tuesday of the month in Puhoi Library. The title is somewhat ambiguous as in the summer we don’t have a fire, and mostly the ‘book’ part of it is rather tenuous; discussion occasionally includes the book itself between slurps of wine. All welcome to come along – no commitment to coming every month and literary credentials needed are minimal!
