Reading Group: Travel Writing

Reading Group: Travel Writing

'That's the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.'
- Jhumpa Lahiri

In April the Reading Group will discuss travel writing. From Paul Theroux to Bill Bryson, Bear Grylls to Eat Pray Love, read a travel memoir and let us know what you think.

There's a wide selection of travel books available to borrow at the Library. Click here for some recommendations from Goodreads.

The meetings are on Wednesday 19, 7.30-9.00 pm, and Saturday 22, 3.30-5.00 pm. Come along to whichever is more convenient.

It's free and you don't need to book. For more information call 720392 or email Adam on
