Book Appreciation Groups
“Pre Covid times we had two Book Appreciation Groups. Each was held in a private house from 11.30 – 1pm – Group 1 on the first Thursday and Group 2 on the first Friday of the month.
Since the initial lockdown in March 2020, we decided to produce a Covid Book Newsletter every two weeks, that would be circulated to all members of the Book Groups. This newsletter contains reviews of books that members have been reading. Anyone, in either group, is encouraged to submit a review and these are collated.
So, in reality, every 2 weeks each member receives an on-line newsletter containing anything up to 12 reviews. Book events – such as the Hay Book Festival- are also included. To-date we have produced 22 Covid Book Newsletters and we intend to continue with them until such time that we can meet in person.
We are enormously grateful to all those people who loyally contribute a review to most editions. There is no compulsion, however – I know many members just enjoy reading all the contributions and perhaps find something they fancy amongst them – and that is fine too!”
