Session Brief

You may be surprised to learn that reading has lots of health, educational and cultural benefits. 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! This session runs every other Sunday morning.

Session Details

How Does

It Work?

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.

What do

I Need?

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).

What Do

I Do?

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.
