Slow Reading Group taster session

Come to our Slow Reading Group taster session!

A new year and a new reading group! The idea is that the group will meet every Wednesday morning from 10.30 for an hour and, over coffee and biscuits, read Middlemarch by George Eliot just a few pages at a time. We will all read from the same copy (the Everyman edition – a beautiful hardback, available from the bookshop) and participants will read their pages at home, then join together in the bookshop to discuss that week’s reading.

The first meeting will be free and will be a gathering to drink coffee, buy the book and discuss how it will all work so that you can be sure that it’s what you want to do. After that, there will be a break of two weeks so that you can get some advance reading done, and from then on we’ll meet every week, with breaks for holidays, etc. The fee will be £5 per week, and after the first month (again, giving you time to make sure its right for you) we will close the group to new members.
