Group Coordinator:  Chris Holifield and Barbara Nokes 

The group meets on the first Wednesday of the month from 10.30am-12.30pm

The group usually meets in a private house near Holloway Road/Caledonian Road Station, but sometimes in other members’ homes

Book Group 6 had its first meeting in February 2017 when the members discussed Philip Roth’s The Plot Against America, the choice of Susan Loppert, the original Coordinator, at its inaugural meeting.

Susan, although a passionate reader and book lover, had never been a member of a book group, and although several of the members had been, we are finding our way as we go along. We are a cosmopolitan and metropolitan group — this is Islington, after all — comprising singles, grandmothers, divorcées, and including, inter alia, lawyers, journalists, teachers, one Scot, one Australian and one South African. Now in its sixth year, nothing significant has changed regarding format and style, and most of the original members are still in the group.
Every month a member chooses a book, which is agreed by the group, and leads the discussion on her choice; books are chosen a month or two in advance so that members can plan their reading. We have decided that no choice should exceed 500 pages and we also generally stick to books which are available in paperback.

Most of our choices have been fiction, with an occasional non-fiction title, mostly biography.

Book Group 6 is not currently looking for new members.
