This month we’ll be discussing And Still I Rise by Maya Angelou on Wednesday the 23rd of July. This is the first time we have done poetry at our book group (hopefully not the last!).

We’ll be meeting at 7.30pm on Wednesday the 23rd of July. Tea and coffee will be provided but you fancy something a little stronger please bring your own.
We don’t require any commitment so if you don’t fancy this book or you’re not available this month you can always come next time.
Questions and suggestions for our next book are always welcome.
