Literature Discussion


A Good Read

If you think discussing literature means only reading “War and Peace” etc., please read on.

While literature is commonly used to refer to written work both before and since Shakespeare, of lasting artistic significance, it also refers to books, articles or anything written in particular subjects areas such as science, law or cookery. Leaflets, newspaper or magazine articles, reviews and journal articles are all considered literature. Even printed words advertising products are called ‘advertising and promotional literature’.

The idea of this new u3a group is that it will discuss anything from any of the above areas and exactly what will be determined by the members of the group. It will not be a typical ‘book club’ where everyone reads the same thing but where members will bring something they’ve read, including books, that they’ve found e.g. enjoyable, interesting, thought provoking, controversial, boring or problematic, to initiate discussion within the group. The group is likely to change and evolve as meetings progress and those attending contribute.

The meetings will take place in an upstairs room at the library on the last Wednesday morning of the month . The first meeting will take place on this September 29th from 10:15 – 11:45 and will be an introductory meeting.

We’d love you to join so if interested please contact one of us at the email addresses or telephone numbers below.
