Fiction Bookgroup - Thursday 06 November, 2014 at 18:30
The Book Club meets the first Thursday of each month from 6:30pm. Each member of the book club can submit a wish list of four books that they wish the club to read.
From the individual wish lists we compile a longlist from which each month we will select a book for the club to read.
English tea and a lively discussion will be guaranteed.
If you would like to be included in the bookgroup please email the shop.
We also hold a number of critique groups at the bookshop, including a poetry and novel group. These critique groups are informal and an ideal place to have your on-going work evaluated by other members of the local community. Please email the bookshop should you require more information.
Come and join our conversation lessons this evening. The aim of this group is to improve your English, become more confident but more importantly to have fun! We help to build each others confidence and encourage each other in a non judgmental way. Each week we have an individual from the group that presents a topic in English!

Time: 6:30pm till 7:30pm
Place: The Bookshop
