Book Groups

photoThe Book Groups meet in the Leeds Central Library, to discuss a book that we have read and express our opinions, likes, dislikes but most importantly have an enjoyable chat. Group A meets on the first Thursday of the month and Group B on the second Friday.

The books we read are varied and sometimes from authors or in genres that you perhaps wouldn't normally consider. The Library has good stocks of the books that we discuss each month, and keeps sufficient copies for U3A Book Group members. Please ask at the desk, to borrow the current month's book.
