Book Chat – May 2022

Book Chat – May 2022

Are you looking for some reading inspiration? Check out the selection of titles recommended by our Book Chat groups during May. 

Book Chat is an informal book group with no set reading list. Come along to share what you are currently reading, what’s next on your TBR (to-be-read) pile, or discuss your favourite books from childhood. Our groups often also chat about movies, audiobooks, podcasts, and magazines they have enjoyed. Light refreshments are provided.
