The Fireside Book Group
The ‘fireside’ bookgroup was originally started as a way of helping us cope with the dim winter months by gathering around the fire in the little Puhoi Library to discuss a book.
On both counts it has rather exceeded its mandate – it now runs all year round (invalidating the ‘fireside’ epithet) and the conversation rarely stays on the book concerned. Digressing into history, psychology, politics, village events and colourful local gossip has become something of a speciality. There’s always a warm welcome, some delicious nibbles and a few bottles of wine bought along to lubricate the intellects.
So come along and join us – not having read the book is certainly not a barrier to entry (indeed I’m pretty sure some members haven’t read the proscribed one yet;-)
We meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:30 pm (as so many groups seem to have snatched the first and last Tuesdays). Just come along and see or use the contact form below for more information.
