We meet on the third Monday in the month, at 10 am in the Hameldon Room, at the Unity Church, Padiham. We are a small, friendly group, usually around twelve in number.
We read a selected book each month and a member leads a review/discussion at the next meeting. Our choice covers a wide range and encourages us look at authors we may not have read before. In the January to July 2020 term our list of authors include, Joy Adamson, John Steinbeck, Graham Green, Iris Murdoch, John le Carre, A J Cronin and Arthur  C Clarke.

Next Meeting – 17th February – We will be discussing ‘The Winter of our Discontent’ by John Steinbeck, at Padiham Unity Centre, 10 am. New members welcome.
