Quite a range of books were discussed from The Man who Mistook His Wife for a Hat; Not Quite Right an autobiography of Jeffrey Smart and Quebec by Louise Penny. Two books relating to Egyptian history were introduced to the group – River God and The Seventh Scroll by Wilbur Smith. Belly Dancing for Beginners by Liz Byrski was also enjoyed as well as other titles by Liz. We also discussed the recently released book, Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee of To Kill a Mocking Bird fame. It was recommended we revisit To Kill a Mocking Bird before reading the new release.
We had a visit from a young schoolboy at the end of our session. He'd asked the librarian if he could join our group, explaining he read a lot of books and we seemed to be having a great time! We hope he comes back after school next month. See you all on the 6th October.
