Books, Coversation and Coffee

Autor of the month: George Orwell 

If you like sharing your thoughts about books, then a book club is just for you. It gives you an opportunity to discuss what excited, moved or annoyed you about a book in a relaxed and informal setting. You may find yourself reading books you wouldn't normally touch or recommending books that had an impact on you. Whatever book is selected, there is always a lively discussion following it.
