February Readers’ Salon


Want to engage more with your own reading and to share favourites with like-minded readers? Love the idea of a book group but don’t like being assigned a particular book? Or do you just want more opportunities to talk books? Whatever the reason, we have just the group for you!

Join us on the first Monday of every month as we chat all things bookish. It’s free to come along and no booking is required – just turn up! We’ll start sharp at 6.30pm and wrap up about an hour later. There will be wine and nibbles provided!

The salon is steeped in history, particularly associated with the Enlightenment Paris meetings of Voltaire and Rousseau. Whilst we’re not aiming for those dizzying intellectual heights, the Golden Hare Readers’ Salon will be an informal but animated affair, where attendees will be united by what they’re reading. Unlike our monthly book group, there’s no theme or set text to be read in advance, just come along and talk about what you’ve been reading, soak up others’ recommendations and chat about all things book related! Participants in our 2017 Reading Challenge are particularly welcome to discuss the categories they’re combating, but really we want this to be a very open forum where conversation is at ease. You can read more about the challenge and our idea behind the Readers’ Salon here.

This group is an inclusive, enjoyable event for people to meet like-minded readers and get some great recommendations from others. A resident bookseller at the Golden Hare will help prod the conversation, but tangents are welcome! We hope to see you there. Just let us know if you have any questions!

Unlike the Book Group, there is no set book to read; instead, we have a semi-structured discussion about books we’re reading, books we want to read and everything in between! It’s always a joy and on the 5th we had our first session of 2018. Continue reading What happened at the Salon?
