LITTLE RIVER BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP

Meets first Tuesday of the Month at 2.30 p.m. for 1 to 2 hours. New members Welcome

The Little River Book Club is part of the Book Discussion Scheme. The BDS provide a catalogue each year containing a huge variety of books from which the book club members select titles they would like to read. Each month the BDS supplies us with one of our choices. We all read the same book and then discuss it at the next meeting. We are a small friendly group, the discussion is light hearted and we often stray off the subject. We would love to have a few more members and anyone interested is quite welcome to come along to a meeting before deciding whether to join.
