Poetry and Book Club: News

We have the bones of a programme for next year from our November meeting.

At this stage these are suggestions.

  • January : Poetry- “Time”
  • February: The Biblical book of Jonah
  • March: Lancashire Poets e.g. Williffe Cunliam (Cunliffe): One of the Lancashire Poets
  • April: “A Time of Gifts Patrick” Leigh Fermor
  • May: DH Lawrence; Poetry and short stories
  • June: “The light between two oceans” M L Stedman
  • July: “Poems from abroad”

Please consider the above carefully and come back to me with any improvements.

The discussion on books for next year was rather rushed, I am particularly not sure about the book for June; ask yourself if you would attend the meeting for that particular book/poet, if you wouldn’t, please come back with another idea.

In the November meeting our favourite books included:

  • “Jane Eyre” by C Bronte
  • “Death at La Fenice” by Donna Leon
  • “Going Solo” Roald Dahl
  • “The Power and the Glory” Graham Greene
  • “The Agony and the Ecstasy by Irvine Stone
  • “Here’s the Story” by Mary McAlease

Our usual great discussion, any of the above would be good for a future meeting.

We meet next by Zoom on the 16th December to discuss “Wildlife Poetry”

Love to all

Mike
