Monthly Book Group

Each month I host an open meeting for Browsers Bookshop, Woodbridge in Suffolk, now held in a nearby hall. We usually focus on modern fiction and the discussion regularly attracts around 20 people, men and women, of all ages. Everyone is welcome to join in but please let me know you are planning on coming along. Sign up to the e-newsletter here to receive details. Scroll down to take a look at the titles we've read over the year, and view the archive for past discussions.

by Louise Erdrich

A Native American woman has been convicted of a horrible crime. While in prison books prove her salvation so when she is unexpectedly released she finds a job in a bookshop though has to contend with the resident ghost. Louise Erdrich won the Pulitzer prize for her last novel, 'The Night Watchman'. What will we make of this?

27th February 2023
by Tarjei Vesaas

Everyone took something different away from this book about grief, entrapment, isolation, community, friendship, coming of age, all set in the icy landscape of Norway. Deceptively simple, slim novel about a moment in time. It prompted a great discussion.
