Reading Group – Summer and Autumn Meetings
A straw poll indicated that many people will be away in August, or will not have had time to read the proposed book, and so it seemed sensible to cancel the August meeting.
However it means that we won’t be able to have The Gathering (Anne Enright) until October, because of it being scheduled to go round various other book groups.
I have copies of Paulo Coelho, The Zahir for the September meeting.
One review said “This is a wonderful story about becoming, and remembering who you were meant to be, not who you settled into. It will stir in you a passion to be more than you think you can be, and, to give more, and love more purely. Follow a man who goes in search of an estranged wife, only to find himself.” Another review uses the words “fatuous” “stupidity” “awful”.
The next meetings of the book group will be on
Thursday 4th September at 7.30
Paulo Coelho, The Zahir
Thursday 9th October at 7.30
Anne Enright, The Gathering.
