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 to comply with the restrictions, so we get together over the web.
In March we read Mary Wollstonecraft’s ‘A Vindication of the Rights of Woman’ as well as looking at what others have written about her and her place in history. Our guest will be Sam Mills, writer, publisher and author of ‘Chauvo-Feminism’ (Indigo Press, 2021). Read along with us and join us on Friday 26th March for a feast of feisty feminist chat.
On St George’s Day, 23rd April and World Reading Night, our guest is Polly Ellis, who recommended ‘Circe’ by Madeline Miller – a re-imagined tale about the witch from the Odyssey, a tale encompassing family rivalry, intrigue, love, war and loss. What more do we need in a good yarn !
And for May 21st, we will be reading the gentle tale of ‘Leonard and Hungry Paul’ by Ronan Hessian, following two friends through their daily life.
