Ulverston Book Club
From 7-9pm a small (but sure to grow) group of book-lovers swapped recommendations, talked excitedly about their favourites, and laid down some basic rules for how the club will function over the next few months. We’ll be meeting roughly monthly. Our July meeting will discuss Margaret Atwood’s wonderful dystopian vision, The Handmaid’s Tale.
One of the interesting things I found out last night is that libraries offer a service for book-clubs where they will lend up to a dozen copies of a text to a club. There’s a list of about 600 titles available, which is what we’ll be choosing our programme from for the next few months. I’m constantly surprised by the services are libraries offer: we can never support them enough.
So, why am I posting this? Two reasons:
Firstly, parents and/or sixth formers might be interested in joining.
Secondly, a couple of Year 12 students have expressed an interest in having a book club at school, which is something I’m very happy to facilitate.
In either case, contact me for more information!
