Next meeting

The next meeting, on Monday 19th September 2016, is the first meeting of the 2016-17 season. The speaker will be Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble With Goats and Sheep. Rachel Joyce (our winner in 2013) says of it: " Part whodunnit, part coming of age, this is a gripping debut about the secrets behind every door". Don't miss Joanna.
