At Chelmarsh Parish Hall

 

The Book Club

meet once a month, with a cup of tea and a biscuit, to talk about the book we have been reading. These have varied between travel books, classics, and biography. Some examples are:

               'The Hare with Amber Eyes', The history of one family in central Europe over 4 generations, through two world wars.              

                'The Warden', by Trollope, Social commentry! A tale of corruption in one of our great institutions.

                'The Narrow Road to the Deep North' by Richard Flanagan. Mainly about the life of an Australian Doctor in a Japanese        Prisoner  of War camp on the Burma Railway.  Powerful and heart rending.

              ' Dissolution'   by C J Sansom      A murder mystery set in the period of Henry VIII and Thomas Cromwell. If you liked Wolf Hall.............

Others including Half of a Yellow Sun, Suite Francaise, and Arthur and George, and Midwich Cuckoos.                                       

We are now reading for Wednesday 20th September

                     'Fair stood the wind for France', by H E BATES              

A compelling tale of love and redemption set against the horrows of war. John's plane crashes in occupied France. Can he save himself and his crew?.

' Perhaps the finest novel of the war...A fine, lovely book which makes the heart beat with pride' : Daily Telegraph

 Future book selection are kept secret until distributed at the meetings, to focus our thoughts on the book in hand.

NOTE that the next meeting will be WEDNESDAY 20th September, at 7.30pm, moved because of the Harvest Supper

     Then 19th October and generally the 3rd Thursday in the month , normally 7.45 p.m., in the Parish Hall. Turn up if you are interested!
