Since its inauguration in 2017 our Book Group has gone from strength to strength. We meet to discuss a new book every 2 months in the WI Hall whenever possible. Our sessions are very enjoyable and aim to promote lots of lively debates.
Owing to the practicalities of a group discussion the number of members has had to be limited and there is sometimes a waiting list. Any WI member may apply to have their name added to the waiting list by contacting Judith Stephenson Tel 872933
Next meeting Thursday March 21st 3pm
The Lords day by Michael Dobbs
The State Opening of Parliament. The most magnificent royal occasion of the year. The Queen, her Cabinet and all the most powerful people in the land are gathering in one room, the House of Lords. And none of them know they are about to endure the most terrifying day of their lives. Not all of them will survive.
Sitting amongst the hostages are two young men, the sons of the British Prime Minister and the US President. It creates the cruellest challenge any leader could face. As the world watches on live television and holds its breath, President and Prime Minister are torn in two between their duty as statesmen, and their love as parents.
Each book is chosen by the group leader at the moment with valuable help from other members. We choose from a wide variety of authors and from a broad selection of genres, themes and writing styles. Titles and synopses of previous choices can be viewed here.
All WI members now have the opportunity to see reviews left by other members and to comment themselves on any of our books. Also, recommendations for new titles which members may like to read at their leisure can be made here.
