The Wootton Courtenay Book Group has been thriving for a number of years. It happens to be all female, and it has therefore occurred to me that there might be a market for a parallel meeting point for others. If you would be attracted to this idea, please send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If there is sufficient interest, I will set up a preliminary meeting. I guess we would need at least ten members to ensure viability and a reasonable attendance each time.
