Join our walking book group in 2020!
A first for York, our monthly walks are a great opportunity to share and talk about interesting books you have read, meet friendly local people and discover easy walks, and the best cafes in York.
Three easy steps:
- Read a book around a theme
- Walk and talk about your book and hear about what others have read
- Enjoy a chat in a café afterwards
We offer some suggestions for books which come largely from the library catalogue and our leader’s knowledge and love of books, but there is no requirement to read any of these, feel free to bring memories of your own reading on the theme.
We meet 11am, first Thursday of the month. Our meeting place is outside York Explore on Museum Street. https://goo.gl/maps/SZPa7WU7v6K2

Thursday 5 March- theme is Biography or Autobiography
Some suggestions for reading around this theme drawn from York Explore Catalogue:
