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:
The 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.”
