Event Details

While we may not be able to meet in person right now, book clubs are still a great way to connect socially and stay engaged! 


After you have read this month's choice, join us for a great discussion. Each month we will read a new title from a variety of genres and authors. New members are always welcome.


Registration required.


 In December, we will be discussing Dear Mrs Bird by A J Pearce. This title is available as an ebook or audiobook from DownloadLibrary


Emmeline Lake and her best friend Bunty are doing their bit for the war effort and trying to stay cheerful, despite the German planes making their nightly raids. Emmy dreams of becoming a Lady War Correspondent, and when she spots a job advertisement in the newspaper she seizes her chance; but after a rather unfortunate misunderstanding, she finds herself typing letters for the formidable Henrietta Bird, renowned advice columnist of Woman's Friend magazine.

Mrs. Bird is very clear: letters containing any Unpleasantness must go straight into the bin. But as Emmy reads the desperate pleas from women who many have Gone Too Far with the wrong man, or can't bear to let their children be evacuated, she begins to secretly write back to the readers who have poured out their troubles.
