The Book Club will re-launch on Wednesday 8th October at 8.30.       New and existing members are all very welcome to join the group.

The evening will be informal with drinks, nibbles and conversations about the books we have read and enjoyed over the summer.  We will then decide on the titles for November and December so please do come along with lots of ideas and suggestions for books we can enjoy reading and discussing together.

From time to time we actually leave Whitehead and go in search of ‘cultural’ events (cinema, theatre, author talks) so if you do hear of anything that we might enjoy please let us know.

Anne Cavan has sent on the link to the Jodi Picoult event in The Theatre at The Mill on Sunday November 9th which some of us may be interested in going along to.
