St Michaels Readers Group

readers group logo

Our monthly readers group was formed by a small group of friends who enjoyed reading and chatting with others about books we’d read.

Our first meeting was held in December 2008 when we shared’ The Island’  by Victoria Hislop. Since then we have read a wide variety of genres from historical novels to biographies, plays, poetry, thrillers, science fiction, short stories and much more.

Apart from the obvious pleasure of chatting about books that you have enjoyed – or not, we aim to encourage our members to widen their choices of reading material and to consider ideas and opinions of others.

We meet on the 3rd Monday of each month at the homes of members. Because of this, our numbers are limited to the size of room available. If you would like to be added to our waiting list please contact Pat on 01584 819875.
