Southport U3A

Book Clubs

There are four Book Clubs to choose from.The maximum number in a group is usually eight people to aid and facilitate a sound discussion. Each group is independent and the choice of books to be read is down to each group. A book a month is read then discussed at the group meeting. Books are selected from the list of books made available by Southport Library. All groups are welcoming and friendly and offer a sociable and friendly evening with like minded people.

These days Reading Groups are widespread but for those unfamiliar with them `Reading Groups’ by Jenny Hartley (Oxford 2001) is an excellent introduction. There are also weekly columns in newspapers, eg. The Times, The Guardian and The Telegraph.

    Book Club 1

    There are currently 5 members and therefore vacancies for a number of people. It is a friendly and sociable group with meetings held in each others’ homes on a voluntary rota. These meetings are usually on a three weekly basis, however, this may vary throughout the year. We read mainly “modern” novels (ie the last 50 years or so).

    Book Club 2

    We take turns to meet in members’ homes and because of this we limit our number to 8 to enable members to be able to accommodate us. However if members cannot accommodate 8 it would not exclude them.
