About the group
We meet on the 3rd Monday of the month at 10.30 – 12 at my flat, 5 Royal Court, Chandos Road, Buckingham , (opposite the entrance to the Royal Latin School, and next door to the Catholic Church).
We are limited to 8 members due to the size of my sitting room. In the summer we hope to meet in the gardens to the flats. beside the river. We have all suggested various books to read and the following list will cover our reading until the end of the year, ranging from crime to religion to fiction.
Last year we had a good variety of books, some of which we struggled with, such as Ashendon by Somerset Maughan which we found very dated. We had a brilliant visit to Broughton Castle after we had read “The Music Room” and were allowed to view this room which is not usually available to jo-public, and were amazed how small the room is. We had to cancel one meeting because of snow, but we hope to discuss the following books this year up to June.
