Book group is informal and if you’ve not been before then do consider joining in or passing these details to friends. All are welcome! For the forseeable future meetings will be taking place virtually via Zoom.

Regular bulletins about meetings are emailed around, so if you’d like to receive these do email dr.will.smith@me.com

We look forward to another year of bookish conversation!  Polly and Will
