Books ! There are over 30 reading groups in Frome - and for this group you don’t even have to leave home ! You can join the presenters by sending in news of your reading group, or making comments about the book under discussion by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org The programmes are repeated on-air on the Tuesday of the following week, and afterwards can be heard online by clicking on the link below. We welcome listeners linked to the Home Delivery Service of the Royal Voluntary Service, who have books delivered to them. Contact Jacquetta Fielder through the library for help and more details.
We are making programmes off-site at the moment. On July 17th, we had a report on re-opening the library, and look back at October’s programme with a Bath whodunnit and author Diana Cambridge. Among Helen’s choice of music is a piece played on the actual instrument mentioned in the book.
On 14th August, continuing the Shakespeare theme from June, we chose books from the Hogarth Shakespeare series. And on 11th September, we tackle The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid – post 9/11 from an Easterner’s viewpoint, and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer – a son’s perspective.
