The Reading Group:

Temple Sowerby Reading Group meets on the fourth Monday of every month in the King’s Arms. Formed in Spring 2012, we have read a variety of titles chosen from the Cumbria Library Service’s list of 600 books available to reading groups. Many of us have now read and enjoyed books we would not have previously chosen to read (although we do occasionally give up on one or two!). The discussion is lively and informal, with no prescribed formula. We are a friendly Group and everyone can contribute as much or as little as they wish.

Anyone interested can contact Angela by email here.
