Book Club

A group of book loving Anglophones meet together regularly to discuss books that have been chosen by its members. If you, like us, enjoy reading. Perhaps you would like the opportunity to explore books that you might not have thought of trying. We are a friendly bunch and our discussions are often lively and thought provoking.

Book Club goes International

Our book club members were very excited when we were approached with a proposal for a meeting between a book club in Jersey and ourselves.

After a great deal of liaising and planning, our Jersey guests arrived on the Saturday afternoon. The evening was kindly hosted at the home of a member of the Coutances-Jersey twinning group.

The evening started with apéros. Then we sat down to a cornucopia of food, punctuated by much talk and laughter as we became acquainted.

Having eaten our fill, it was down to the serious business of dis-cussing the chosen book. This was The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.

The evening came to a close and the hosts took their guests home with them for a well earned sleep.

Sunday saw us all meet up in La Pergola, on the outskirts of Coutances, enjoying yet more food and conversation before saying “adieu” to our new friends.
