Our group  has been running for 4+ years and we meet monthly in members’ houses in a lively, easy-going atmosphere but can also enjoy a serious discussion on issues that arise. Individuals can contribute  as much or as little as they wish and it provides an opportunity to expand members’ knowledge of both fiction and non fiction. Sometimes 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.

Our books are provided by Devon Libraries Book Group Service and are collected monthly by Janet, our Group Convener. The choice of books, are selected by us from a list annually, and are extremely diverse and introduce us to new authors in addition to familiar ones.

To give you an idea,  we have read “ The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night “ by Mark Haddon, which is an emotional but funny book about a 15 year old boy who suffers from a type of Autism.

A very different book was, “ And the Mountains Echoed “ by Khaled Husseini “, which follows the Saboor family saga through many generations, moving across continents from Kabul to Paris, then to San Francisco and the Greek Island of Tinos –  a captivating and mesmerizing story.
