Literature

The important bit!

The Literature Group meets monthly on the second Tuesday of each month at 2 30 pm.  We normally meet at 12 Glenmore Road, Minehead.  Please remember to check the Calendar in case of any late changes to schedule.

Our group is led by Laura Peters, and she may be contacted at 01643 704175, or by email at literature@minehead-district-u3a.org.uk.  Please note that this group has limited membership. If you are interested in adding your name to a waiting list, click here.

Group information

The Literature Group was one of the first groups when Minehead & District U3A started in 1998.  Since then we have read a variety of books: classics, new publications, books by authors of different nationalities (including American and African authors), biographies, autobiographies and travel books.

We normally meet in Minehead, and we always have a lively discussion.  It is helpful if we choose books that are easily available from the library, and which we can order in advance.

Latest group news

The group is stirring into life again!  Members have received the current book, A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson, which – government guidelines permitting – we shall discuss at a face-to-face meeting on 20 July (note the unusual date!).  It has been hard to keep going, partly because of the difficulty obtaining enough copies of the book chosen for discussion during library closure.
