Do you have a passion for reading? Then why not join us every month, when we come together in reading and reviewing a wide selection of books. Our friendly sessions are the perfect way to meet like-minded readers and discover exciting new reads. We explore short stories, novels, non-fiction, poetry, and best sellers.
Friday 17th March – Tim Marshall, Prisoners of Geography
All leaders are constrained by geography. Their choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Yes, to follow world events you need to understand people, ideas and movements – but if you don’t know geography, you’ll never have the full picture. If you’ve ever wondered why Putin is so obsessed with Crimea, why the USA was destined to become a global superpower, or why China’s power base continues to expand ever outwards, the answers are all here.
Friday 21st April – Bonnie Garmus, Lessons in Chemistry
Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, Elizabeth Zott would be the first to point out that there is no such thing as an average woman. But it’s the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute takes a very unscientific view of equality. Except for one: Calvin Evans; the lonely, brilliant, Nobel–prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with—of all things—her mind. True chemistry results. But like science, life is unpredictable.
