The Northern Book Group
This group of 7 members meet once a month around the North of the Island. Their book choices are wide and catholic with everything from selected essays, to sci-fi to classics and modern fiction. Poetry and polemical tomes have also been tackled with varying degrees of enthusiasm. What the NBG do well though is spirited debate. It’s not unknown for a member to go having read a book and hated it, and found that actually, there were parts of merit. And sometimes, minds cannot be changed because reading is like eating. Your personal tastes are your own. You may recognise the benefits of eating Kale, but that doesn’t mean you will.
The members meet in each others’ homes.
