February

The literature Group gets together once a month to discuss books which they have read in the weeks before. They discuss the plot, the style of writing, the start and finish of the storyline, the meaning (if any) of the story and of course whether they liked it on not. Discussions can be quite lively. They are going to branch out and try reading plays and poetry in future. They are currently reading Frankenstein, which is proving quite a challenge.
