Novel Discussion Group

We are currently reviewing this course and its format in view of safe distancing recommendations  due to COVID.

There is something here for a wide range of reading tastes. We have world-famous, less well-known and close to forgotten writers. Hopefully, there might even be some humour…

We meet once a month, on Saturday mornings. The format is open, with participants expressing their views about all aspects of the novels. We concentrate on twenty-first-century novels, and during Summer 2017 all four have been published recently.
