Sustainable Book Club

Bring along a book (or two! Or more!) that you are willing to lend to someone else. The book can be fiction of any genre OR non-fiction. Participants then 'pitch’ the book you have brought along, or describe it to everyone else. Everyone then chooses someone else’s book to take home. Meet next month and bring the same book back if you have finished it, or bring along a new one to swap!

The next meeting will be at 8:30pm on Tuesday the 15th November at The Castle. 

Meetings will be kept short and casual, but you are always welcome to stay on at the pub for another drink and a chat as you wish. We hope to stimulate our brains with new ideas and new books to read, and warm our souls with some conversation as the winter nights draw in, so if any of this appeals, whatever kind of books you are into, please pop along, or contact to find out more!
