Come and join us

 

Have you ever read a good book and been dying to talk to somebody about it? Our group gives you an opportunity to discuss what excited, moved or annoyed you about a book in the relaxed and convivial atmosphere of Sampford Courtenay's New Inn.

You may find yourself reading books you wouldn't normally touch or recommending books that had an impact on you. It's a way of trying different authors and finding out how other people are affected by the books they read. Whichever book is chosen, it always provokes a lively discussion. 

So, if you want to stimulate your mind with interesting conversations, do join us at 7.30pm on the last Tuesday of each month. 

 

Due to Covid-19, we are currently meeting on Zoom so for further information, email Ishbel Gordon: ishgordon@live.co.uk

The choice for September is Blonde Roots by Bernardine Evaristo.

 

'What if the history of the transatlantic slave trade had been reversed and Africans had enslaved Europeans? How would that have changed the ways that people justified their inhuman behavior? How would it inform our cultural attitudes and the insidious racism that still lingers today? We see this tragicomic world turned upside down through the eyes of Doris, an Englishwoman enslaved and taken to the New World, movingly recounting experiences of tremendous hardship and the dreams of the people she has left behind, all while journeying toward an escape into freedom.'
