Vintage books

The important bit!

Vintage Books group meets monthly on the third Tuesday of each month in the afternoon.  We normally meet in Minehead cafés, and venues may vary.  Please remember to check the Calendar in case of any late changes to schedule.

Our group is led by Pam Bartlett, and she may be contacted at 01643 703966, or by email at vintagebooks@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.

About the group

Between the classics and the books of the 21st century lie a host of authors, often out of print and almost forgotten.  How many remember Mary Webb as well as Thomas Hardy, or John Bude as well as Agatha Christie?  How many remember the novels of Winston Graham other than the ‘Poldark’ series, or those of Stella Gibbons other than ‘Cold Comfort Farm’?  How many remember Rumer Godden, E.F. Benson or Alistair McLean?  If you are interested in re-discovering, or even discovering, all these vintage authors, then please consider joining thuis new book group.  Initial contact to share ideas will be by email but it is hoped to start meetings in the new year.  Contact Pam to learn more.
