Book Groups:

Book Group 1

We have good relations with Haddenham Community Library and we borrow book sets to read each month. Members take it in turns to do some background research on the book of the month, which they then present to the group to stimulate discussion. We read a wide variety of books, including both classics and modern authors.

Group Leader

If you would like to join the group (there is just one vacancy at the moment) please contact Ann Warris on 01844 292273 or warris@mypostoffice.co.uk

Venue

We meet in members’ homes at 2.00pm on the fourth Tuesday of the month. There is no meeting in December.

Costs

None

Book Group 2

We try to read a wide variety of books. We sometimes look at different examples of a particular genre or read the biography of a classic author as well as one of their books. A planning meeting is held each year at which each member suggests books for the next programme. They then present the book which they have suggested. The presenter will research the author and the context if appropriate and will look at aspects such as characterisation in order to promote a lively discussion. We source the books ourselves either by borrowing them from the library or buying them.
