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
What We Talk About When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver
Bridport Book Club have chosen ‘What We Talk About When We Talk About Love’ as our next title, which is a collection of short stories by Raymond Carver.
“In his second collection, including the iconic and much-referenced title story featured in the Academy Award-winning film Birdman, Carver establishes his reputation as one of the most celebrated short-story writers in American literature—a haunting meditation on love, loss, and companionship, and finding one’s way through the dark.”
Bridport would like to let you know that copies are available second hand on Abe Books for about £4 including p and p, as on Amazon it is £8.50 and it is only a slim book.
Thank you Bridport for your choice. The next title will be chosen by Somerset.
