Local Groups

High Ham Book Group

We meet about every 6 weeks to discuss a book chosen by one of the group. We meet informally at someone's house where drinks are served and discussion begins. The host chooses the next book - mainly fiction covering a wide range of genres, and occasionally non-fiction and poetry. We always find time to talk about current news, both UK/local and international - it's been difficult to avoid mention of BRexit and Trump in the last year!

Please email Anne Bond if you are interested in joining the group
