The Book Club At Chelmarsh Parish Hall

We have been running now for some 4 years, and meet once a month, with a cup of tea and a biscuit, to talk about the book we have been reading. These have varied between travel books, classics, and biography. Some examples are:

‘The Hare with Amber Eyes’, The history of one family in central Europe over 4 generations, through two world wars.

‘Sons and Lovers’ By D H Lawrence. Classic study of growing up and family relationships, in a coal mining village in Nottinghamshire

‘The Narrow Road to the Deep North’ by Richard Flanagan. Mainly about the life of an Australian Doctor in a Japanese Prisoner of War camp on the Burma Railway. Powerful and heart rending.

‘ Dissolution’ by C J Sansom A murder mystery set in the period of Henry VIII and Thomas Cromwell. If you liked Wolf Hall………….

Others including Half of a Yellow Sun, Suite Francaise,  Arthur and George, and Midwich Cuckoos.

We select the books anonymously each autumn, from a list available from Shropshire Library Service, and then keep this selection hidden until the month’s book is revealed. This allows us to focus on the book in hand. The book we are currently reading is shown on our’ Diary’ entry for the month.

Turn up if you are interested!
