Would you like to be part of our Big Book Club?
Do you like reading the occasional book? Would you like to connect with other Colyton parents? Then maybe our Book Club is for you.
We have nine branches in the locations listed below and over 120 registered members. We take it in turns to choose the books we read and each group meets every half-term to discuss the previous title. Our groups meet in each others homes or in pubs or other social spaces. We are very friendly and inclusive and it’s a lovely way to meet other parents who you wouldn’t normally come across. If we don”t have a branch in your area we would love to hear from you as we are always looking to extend the Club where needed.
We have branches for the areas around:
~ Honiton/Ottery St Mary
~ West Hill
~ Sidmouth/ Newton Poppleford
Our groups feedback thoughts on each title and these reviews are published on our Facebook page and this website. Once a year we aim to have a Big Read where all the groups meet together in Cottrill Hall to listen to a visiting author. If you would like more information, please email Rebecca Russell, PA Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.orgJoin the Book Club
In 1975, Viv Albertine was obsessed with music but it never occurred to her she could be in a band as she couldn’t play an instrument and she’d never seen a girl play electric guitar.
A year later, she was the guitarist in the hugely influential all-girl band the Slits, who fearlessly took on the male-dominated music scene and became part of a movement that changed music.
A raw, thrilling story of life on the frontiers and a candid account of Viv’s life post-punk – taking in a career in film, the pain of IVF, illness and divorce and the triumph of making music again – Clothes Music Boys is a remarkable memoir.
