Join the Scarlet Book Club

The Library at the Scarlet - home to the new Scarlet Book Club
Scarlet manager Nikki Broom has had an – ahem - novel idea: start a book club at the Scarlet.
We’re inviting any fiction fanatics that may be lurking in the environs of Mawgan Port – and further afield for bibliophiles prepared to travel – to join us in the Scarlet Library once a month for some literary loquaciousness.
Relentless reader Jane Costin has volunteered to facilitate the meetings.
She said: “I worked at many different jobs before I discovered my passion for English literature, which I studied as a mature student.
“While I really enjoy reading and writing about books, these are both solitary occupations giving me no opportunity to discuss what I have read with other, like-minded people.
“So, I was enthusiastic about Nikki’s idea of starting a book club at the Scarlet. I thought that talking about books in the comfortable surroundings of the library would be a very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.”
We would like to suggest the first meeting at 2pm in the Scarlet Library on Thursday 27th September 2012.
Jane will help the group agree a reading list and agree times for further meetings and the format you might like them to take.
There is no charge to join or attend the Scarlet Book Club, but you might treat yourselves to some tea and cake whilst you are here.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if you are able to attend on the 27th September.
Please bring suggestions for the reading list to the first meeting.
