Monthly Reading Group

Monthly Reading Group

Saturday 1st June

The Bleddfa Centre Reading Group meets once a month, normally on the first Saturday afternoon. Each meeting discusses a pre-selected book, ranging across genres, covering fiction (traditional and contemporary) and non-fiction (biography, autobiography, memoir, history). We welcome new members. By way of guidance our working practice is:

  • Members buy or borrow from libraries their own copies of books to be discussed. We try to ensure selections where paperback or cheap second hand copies are available.
  • Discussion will focus on issues raised by the content, style and literary context and merits of the book, which  members will have read prior to the meeting.
  • All members participate in the process of choosing candidates for discussion.
  • Meetings take place in Hall Barn at Bleddfa Centre from 2pm - 3:30pm.
  • Light refreshments will usually be available before or after meetings.
  • Communications to group members will usually be by email.

Forthcoming meeting for the group are as follows: Saturday 1st June - Robert Harris Conclave Saturday 6th July - Anna Burns Milkman. All of these books are available in inexpensive paperbacks, or from re-sellers of second hand books such as AbeBooks UK.

We meet at Hall Barn (top of the track past the School House at Bleddfa Centre) and start at 2:00pm. We usually meet for about an hour and a half, and a donation (suggested £3) towards the Centre is very much appreciated. Looking ahead, we anticipate regular meetings on the first Saturday of the month in June to August.
