Members of U3A are all welcome to join the activities of the groups. Contact details of leaders are given in the Programme of Events.
As more interest has been shown in reading rather than having a go at Creative Writing it has been decided to form a Book Group instead.
"The Life of Pi" was a challenging read. Opinions were sharply divided and this made for some lively discussion on topics raised in the book such as religions, animals in the wild and in zoos, violence, and human endurance.
It is a complicated tale filled with factual details, unbelievable situations, and wildly imaginative episodes. Marked out of 10 for readability, storyline, literary merit, characterisation, the average mark overall was 5 - some enjoyed it a lot more than others!
Once a month Thursday afternoon
Next meeting: Thursday 6 June 2.pm.
Venue: Sally's home car share
Book for discussion:
June Book: "Lucky Jim" by Kingsley Amis
No meeting in July, so "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", by Victor Hugo has been chosen for holiday reading.
