Coopers’ Hawk as featured in Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

Our meetings are held on the morning of the second Tuesday of the month primarily at St John’s Church Cafe. Unfortunately we have no vacancies.

Over a cup of coffee we have a chat before we listen to some background notes on the author of that month’s chosen book and then we are open to discussion.

We read books from all genres, suggested as they are by our members. Naturally the reception is mixed, so our discussions are always enjoyable and stimulating. Each year we find books which are new to at least some of us, often something we might not have chosen for ourselves.

For ease of review at a later stage we like to give the book a score out of 10 and these are recorded – see below.
