Rothsay Readers Group – Jenny Morris
We shall meet to spend a couple of relaxing but absorbing hours together exploring and discussing literature which is enjoyable, varied and not too taxing for the summer holiday season. We shall also watch some short film extracts related to the literature we read and/or the writers. Some of the literature will be novels, some short stories, and some poetry and plays. We shall start with the relationship between Barbara Pym (a novelist) and Philip Larkin, (a poet). Please note: as the centre is closed at that time usually, catering options will be limited.
