Let’s talk about books

Book Talk recently planned its programme for this year. What’s Book Talk?
It’s our telephone-based reading group for the housebound residents of Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea. Among the titles to be discussed at the monthly meet-up over the phone are:

Queen Camilla by Sue Townsend Shakespeare by Bill Bryson Random Acts of Heroic Love by Danny Scheinmann Mr Mac and Me by Esther Freud Notes from an Exhibition by Patrick Gale  The Pirate's Daughter by Margaret Cezair-Thompson Margot at War by Anne de Courcy The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding by Agatha Christie A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey

Ten Days by Gillian SlovoThe selection is a great mixture of fiction and non-fiction, and includes Shakespeare by Bill Bryson in this 400th anniversary year. We’ll also be joining many other reading groups, right across London, in reading the Cityread London book – Gillian Slovo’s Ten Days – in April.
Next on the schedule though is February’s title, Queen Camilla by Sue Townsend.

If you’d like to find out more about Book Talk, get in touch. Here’s what a couple of group members think:

“It’s a challenge to read something I wouldn’t normally try.”

“People aren’t interested in other people in London. But at least we have one another to talk to about the books.”
