December Book Club — Christmas Special book swap

Hello Book Clubbers

Our last book 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being' by Milan Kundera provoked huge amounts of discussion and strong emotions! A book that was totally life changing for some and a waste of a week for others!

Christmas at Book Club


It is now time to talk about Christmas! Well be having our Book Club Christmas special on Wednesday 11th December, 7.30 at the Crucible Corner. We will be having food and a Christmas book swap. We have booked a table and they are going to give us the menu beforehand (they have not yet emailed it so we will send it in a separate email).  The 'Book swap' is simple, bring a book, receive a book. A few rules; it must be a book you would like someone to read rather than one you just want to get rid of, it can't be a previous book club book and it needs to be wrapped. If you would like to join us then please let us know and we can add you to the list. Normal Book Club resumes in January. If you haven't been before you are more than welcome to turn up for the Christmas one.
