Belhaven Bookies: Reading with a spiritual or moral dimension
A great way to get to know people better
Not as the name vaguely suggest a turf accountancy being run surreptitiously under the auspices of Belhaven Parish Church, but rather a book group designed to allow all who are interested to discuss a chosen book over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. We meet in Saddlers cafe roughly every two months or so from 8 to 9.30pm. Saddlers do a great line in tea/coffee and, not least, cakes; no diets that evening. All are very welcome to come.
Our focus in the group is books which have something of a spiritual or moral dimension which permit discussion of issues of relevance to our lives and our thinking. We plan to maintain this approach. Our most recent meeting was on 13 March and we had a lively exchange on To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee. The book was chosen before the much publicised announcement of a further book by Harper Lee - a sequel to To Kill a Mocking Bird - called Go Set a Watchman. Our next meeting is likely to be on 8 or 13 May - the exact date will be publicised nearer the time - in the notices for the Sunday service in advance.
Previously we have considered a range of books including:- The Light Between Oceans by ML Stedman; The Cone-Gatherers by Robin Jenkins; Philomena by Martin Sixsmith; East of Eden by John Steinbeck; Leaving Alexandria by Richard Holloway; and Book of Books by Melvin Bragg. The group itself decides the next book to be discussed.
Remember - A great way to get to know people better
