    Hello, is this group still meeting? Are the details above still correct?

  5. Hi. Details still correct. Next meeting October 10th 7pm in the coffee bar at Unity House. This month-s book – Jane Austen Persuasion – available from library or as a free download ebook.
    See you there

    • Hi Tom,

      Is this group is still active and meeting in the same location? I have searched online for reference to it and can find none.

      • Hi Shaun
        Yes. Still active. Currently we’re meeting in The Priory pub in Back lane. See here:
        https://www.facebook.com/ThePrioryWakefield/
        Next meeting – Monday July 10 7pm. We’ll be discussing “The Ghost of Lily Painter” by Caitlin Davies. Available from the library (if they have any left) All comers welcome.

        We never meet in August.

        Tom

  6. Thanks Tom. Monday evenings are tricky for me, but in the autumn I might have more time. Does the group have any social media presence where things like the schedule of books is published?

    • Hi Shaun
      Sorry but we don’t have anyone willing to take that on. In any case there is no forward schedule of books. We have a wish list and get books from the library service depending on availability so we don’t really know more than a week or two in advance what we’re reading next. If you’re planning to come to a meeting let me know and I’ll tell you where we are…
