Adult reading groups
People of all ages and from all walks of life are getting together up and down the country to discuss, debate, and exchange views about books, from the latest best sellers and contemporary fiction to classic titles, poetry and plays. It’s a great way of meeting new friends who share a like-minded passion for books and there are regular structured groups taking place at many of our city libraries.
