Virtual Book Club (11)
Theme: Books with a Family Member in the title
Our next theme is books with a family member in the title.
I think we'll all agree that over the last year family has been so important. Some of us have spent a lot more time with our families due to Working from home and home schooling but on the flip side of the coin it's also been harder to see other family members because of the Lock Downs.
To celebrate the lifting of some more of the restrictions our theme this month is books with a family member in the title - think things like 'The Husband's Secret', 'The Seven Sister's' or even 'My Cousin Rachel'. There are more out there than you think once you start searching.
The next meeting is on Monday 14th June at 7pm.
What happens at the book club:
A small group meet on a regular basis, we review a book of your own choice matching the chosen theme. Each person takes it in turn to review their book, good points and bad points, what we enjoyed and writing styles. We then choose the next theme and meeting date. It is a great opportunity to brush up your presentation skills, boost your confidence and network with new or existing contacts.
Even if you don't read a book this time round, come along so you can see how the group works and its benefits. You don't have to have come along before to attend and we're happy to have people come along that just want to drop in for a session now and then. Be great to see you there!
