Join the Club!

Club together to support Charity

St Richard’s Hospice has launched a new Book Club at it’s Cafe in Worcester. The aim of the book club is to reach out to the local book reading community while building a thriving group. Director of Kissed Off Creations Ltd, Natalie Ballard, is chairing the meetings following an invitation from Lydia Repton.

Inaugural meeting

The first meeting took place today, and while many books and topics were discussed, the chosen book for our meeting in June is “Life of Pi” by Yann Martell. This was met with unanimous support by the Club’s members. The next meeting is scheduled for the 15th June at 9am.

Copies of “Life of Pi” are available from the bookstore for £1.75, and why not have a great coffee and a browse while you are there!

The backup books are: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, The Beekeeper’s Daughter by Santa Montefiore and the Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins – for those who are unable to finish reading the Life of Pi or would like an alternative book to read.

Club aims

The book club will be focussed predominantly on all realms of fiction, however we will also be looking outside of this genre on occasion as well as previewing forthcoming releases from Kissed Off Creations Ltd. There is no pressure to finish books nor to read the backups, all we ask is for you to bring along another book review or a recommendation of a title for the group.

If you cannot attend the group, simply drop in your review before the meeting at the store either to Lydia or to one of the other volunteers, and we can add your comments to our discussion.

Book reviews may be abridged and used to support window displays and advertising of the group.

Come along and join in

Pop along for a chat about books and a lovely coffee (and maybe a sneaky piece of cake too!) on 15th June. The cafe has wheelchair access and is situated through the charity’s well-stocked bookshop… even if they haven’t got your book in store, they are sure to be able to source it for you.
