Lively debate on topical issues, opinions on authors and their works.
We are a small relaxed book group who just enjoy reading and talking about books. Because we are all over 60, our discussions tend to have that slant to them – how things look from our perspective.
The group is led by Caroline Mitchell, a librarian from Tooting Library, who always provides the selected books for the group ahead of time, which is a great advantage.
Books we have read include The Green Road by Anne Enright and The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, check out upcoming books in our online events calendar.
We’re always happy to have new people come along and share our morning. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the book, our discussions are pretty wide ranging.
The group is led by Caroline Mitchell, a librarian from Tooting Library.
The class is held at The Furzedown Project.
On the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 10.00am till 12.00 .
Each session costs £2 and tea, coffee and biscuits are 50p.
Transport is not provided specifically for this class
The Radio Group alternates with the Book Club and we’re a spin-off
from them and share the spirit of shared discussion.
The difference is that rather than having to prepare in advance, by reading a book for
example, here members gather to listen together to a programme from
Radio 4 i-Player and then offer their own comments and reflections.
Recent discussions have been provoked by an interview with Sandi
Toksvig, a Desert Island Discs episode featuring Marianne Faithful and a programme about ageing ‘In Our Own Time’ by Melvyn Bragg.
We would love it if you could join us.
Jeremy Weinstein prepares the podcasts and leads the discussion.
