June book club meeting.

Greetings, book-lovers!

 

The group met merrily last Friday to discuss their reading of authors in the U-V section of the fiction shelves, and all seemed to have a positive experience.  Dark Fortune, by Susan Udy, and The Art of Baking Blind, by Susan Vaughan, were singled out as particularly good reads. 

The next meeting, which will be held at 4pm on Friday 8th June, so as not to clash with the Queen’s Birthday weekend, is venturing into completely new territory for the group: the category is ‘Fiction based on a true story’.   

All of our Libraries have a list of titles that fit this description, which is available from the desk.

Have fun with this one!
