Carlisle Reading Group

Our reading group in Carlisle continued to take place during Lockdown, albeit virtually, via Zoom. We  look forward to meeting in person again now that restrictions are lifted.
The Carlisle group meets at 7pm on the last Wednesday of the month in Cakes and Ale Cafe. We usually have between 6 and 12 members of the group in attendance.
The next meeting will take place on Wednesday 29th September at 7pm. The September book choice is The First Woman by Jennifer Makumbi, the winner of the Jhalak Prize 2021. Find out more about this prizewinning book here
We offer 20% discount when you buy the book at Bookends, or you can buy the book with home delivery at our page on the indie-supporting
