The Swindon IVC book club is a sub-group for members of Swindon IVC. The book club meets about once every 6 to 8 weeks at different venues, often in people's houses. A theme/genre is chosen and then a book (or two) is picked for that month. Very informal and sociable so, if you like talking about books, having a good discussion, and meeting up over a drink and some nibbles, why not come along?

The last read, discussed at the meeting on 24th July (held by group Zoom video call) was a choice of a new release by James McBride “Deacon King Kong” and an earlier book by the same author “Colour of Water”, both chosen by Lindsay

Bill has chosen the next read(s) The first choice is "And when did you last see your Father by Blake Morrison" The alternative is "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett

The next meeting will be on Saturday 19th September 2020, at 2:30pm, venue suggested is Coate Water - it is hoped we can actually meet in person outdoors with a picnic but of course dependent on Covid-19 and weather restrictions at the time. If we are not able to meet in person it will be via a Zoom meeting again

New members are very welcome but should contact the host in advance so they get included on the time and other last minute details of the next meeting

The bookclub has set up its own email group to aid communication - currently administered by Richard S - please ask if you would like to be added.

Happy reading!
