Last night, braving the elements, 7 members of Birchgrove WI joined together in the lounge of the local Conservative Club to begin our very own book club.
After some introductions, a discussion was had about the group and it was decided we would like to be fairly informal with some relaxed discussion about the book we read collectively and some recommendations of other books we have read and enjoyed.
Our first book is "A Woman In Berlin", by an anonymous author and chroniclling the life of a woman living through the Russian occupation of Berlin in 1945. Her diary has only recently been published into English and has just been made into a film.
The books were supplied through an awesome free service from Cardiff Libraries, which has a vast array of titles available in sets to book clubs around the city, some with discussion notes ready prepared!
We meet on the 8th November to discuss the book and begun our next text! Come along and join us
