“ Our group has been running for 4+ years, and is currently at full capacity. We meet in member’s houses and are a jolly group who enjoy a good read and a good laugh, but also appreciate a serious discussion on issues that arise. Our books are provided by Devon Libraries Book Group Service and are collected by Janet, our Convener.  The books which are selected by us from a list once a year, are extremely diverse and introduce us to new authors, as well as familiar ones.

To give you an idea, we have read “ The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time”, by Mark Haddon, which is an emotional but funny book about a 15 year old boy who suffers from a type of Autism. followed by  “Believing the Lie” by Elizabeth George, a Crime Thriller of the Inspector Lynley series, based in the Lake District.

PLEASE CLICK HERE ON  Literature Group News,  WHERE YOU CAN READ BOOK REVIEWS ON SOME OF THE LATEST WORKS WE HAVE READ.

The literature group provides an opportunity to expand members’ knowledge of fiction and non fiction.
Works are chosen by the group, read at home, and discussed at the monthly meetings in a lively, easy going atmosphere. Individuals can contribute as much or as little as they wish.

At some meetings the life of the author and background of the book may be explored.
The emphasis is on prose but some poetry may also be considered.  The Literature group will meet on the third Friday of the month and members will meet at 10:30 to 12:30.
