And there is so much to read - short stories, poetry, plays, historical dramas, political thrillers, science fiction, romance, comedy, biographies - the list is endless! So bring your drinks and snacks and settle in to talk all things books and the worlds they allow us to escape to with our host Deborah and fellow book lovers! Jump in at any time,
all are welcome!

Lead by Deborah, members talk about what they're currently reading or plan to read. Each week members share their thoughts, feelings and ideas about what they have read, which usually leads to some lively discussion. There may also be podcasts or interviews with authors, readings from members, or anything else which the members bring along.
You will need your laptop or mobile device, your session zoom link, a quiet space, your reading material and anything else you would like to share, and a notepad and pen. (Deborah is mindful of costs, so will guide the group on selecting readings which are accessible online (free if possible) or not too expensive to buy).
Deborah will lead the session, so you get to just be there and relax and to talk about what you have read. Obviously this group requires 'homework' in that you need to read between the sessions.
Deborah has a masters in English Literature and a real passion for language and literature. In Book Club she shares her knowledge of writers, and their works, really bringing them alive with their history, interesting facts and life stories. She adores reading and all things books and stories and really helps this group to come together and share what they're each reading currently and the impact that reading has made upon them. At the same time she makes sure Book Club is lighthearted and full of laughter and conversation while still offering a safe place to have some really in depth discussions. It's a part of a Sunday evening well spent.
