Looking to join a new book group, or always wondered about taking part in one?
Book groups are great fun, but often when done in sitting rooms with friends they can famously turn into wine groups. Nothing wrong with that, but the Golden Hare Book Group is very focused on talking about lots of different aspects of lots of different books (but don’t worry, we still have wine). You also don’t need to worry about joining a group where everyone knows each other, as we always welcome new faces as well as those who have been attending since we opened in 2012! It’s a great way to vary your reading and find out about other people’s tastes and perspectives.
On the last Tuesday of every month, the Golden Hare closes its doors to the public and opens exclusively to our Book Group members! Wine is served and we chat about the book for around an hour – it’s all very informal and friendly, but we do stick to the topic. We then choose a book for the next session by adding suggestions into a hat (NB: not an actual hat) which we then pull three suggestions from, discuss what we’d like to do next month, and voila!
At the moment there’s no need to book a place for attending the Book Group, just read the book and show up on the night – we always have wine, soft drinks, nibbles and insightful chat in abundance. And, if you’re a member of the bookgroup, you can get 15% off next month’s title when you buy it in-store! And soon you’ll be able to order online, too…
