The Reading Club consists of eight women. We meet nine times per year, on the first Wednesday of the month from 12:00 to 13:30, but not in July, August and December. Before the discussion we eat a light lunch together. Then we discuss the book that we had all chosen.

In September, we start the reading year with a joint dinner to which everyone contributes. In kind, but also something to share between courses: a nice anecdote, music, a poem, a travel story or otherwise. It is a good opportunity to tell our holiday stories and keep in touch. 

We would like to remain a women’s reading group. We have known each other for a long time and have become ‘pleasantly’ familiar with each other. This does not rule out the group growing: we would welcome that. Perhaps it is an idea for the board (or for those who would like to) to set up a new mixed reading group?
