Short Story Book Group 2

Thinking of joining a book group but worried a novel a month might be too time-consuming or too expensive? For the cost of one book of short stories, you could enjoy many years of discussion: from the old to the new, from the straightforward to the more challenging, from the thriller to the romance. Each month a member of the group will suggest a story of their choice from the book that they think will be a good read and stimulate an enjoyable discussion.


Third Friday of the month from 10 to 11 am
