Reading Group

Temple Sowerby Reading Group alternates it’s monthly meetings between the Kings Arms Pub on a Monday evening and TempleVelo on a Friday afternoon. 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.
