The WOW WI Book Group met once again at Loves Cafe on Tuesday 22nd May. The book for discussion was Charles Dickens The Old Curiosity Shop- which it appeared you either loved or hated...or in some cases hadn' even read! This classic tale of Nell and her grandfather fleeing London in poverty and surrounded by various colourful charcters was not everyones cup of tea. A few found it unreadable, most had got at least half way through, one or two members were enjoying it..... four members had actually finished it! It was agreed that although we should read a 'classic' at least once a year, Dickens detailed and visual style required concentration, was of its time, but was very popular entertainment in its day.
Next two meeting dates are Tuesday 12th June and Tuesday 10th July.The book for June is The Unlikley Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce and in July we are reading the Red House by Mark Haddon.
Thee is NO WOW WI book group meeting in August but the group will resume again in September.
