We started our Book Group in February 2015 when we used to meet at our shop in Bridge Street. When we moved the group decided it wanted to continue. Our new venue is at the Sun Hotel in Sun Street Hitchin. The group is very strong and we have gelled well which is not to say we are cliquey new members are always welcome but we do find if they join then they tend to stay.
Since we began we have read a vast array of different kinds of books many of which we wouldn’t have selected ourselves but that is the joy of a book group it is discovering new authors and maybe new genres too.
We read mostly fiction but have read a few non-fiction titles too. Mostly we stay focused on the book but sometimes something happens in a novel which resonates with someone’s real life experience.
The Sun Hotel is exceedingly good place to meet.The staff are lovely and it gives us many options, we can have alcohol, soft drinks or tea and coffee so something for everyone. We always meet on the last Thursday of the month so just come along or if you have any questions about the reading group contact us and we will reply as soon as we can.
